Spike in Customers Using LYH


Lynchburg, VA - The Lynchburg Airport has seen some record numbers this year.

In May, more than 14,000 passengers came through the airport. This is a record number for one of their busiest months of the year.

Officials expect the trend to continue. They estimate more than 150,000 people will travel through the terminals this year.

"We've seen upgraded equipment, we've seen more jet aircrafts flying out of here and they don't put those aircrafts in markets that aren't performing," said Mark Courtney, Lynchburg airport manager.

Courtney says June is also turning out to be a good month. He hopes the increase in demand will help make other destinations available and potentially bring another airline to Lynchburg.
