EGG HARBOR TWP - It was a record-breaking month in March for the operators of the Atlantic City International Airport here.

A total of 122,597 passengers used the airport in March, an 11.46 percent increase over the same month in 2011.

South Jersey Transportation Authority, operators of the airport, noted the passenger record was more significant as AirTran Airways discontinued service to Atlantic in January. AirTran accounted for 8,128 passengers in March 2011.

Overall, passenger traffic at the airport is up 6.5 percent thus far in 2012 compared to the same period a year ago, said Bart Mueller, executive director for the transportation authority.

“We anticipate continued passenger growth with the return of seasonal daily service to Chicago and Detroit in May,” Mueller said. “Spirit Airlines has stepped up with service to Atlanta, also beginning in May, which will fill the void left by AirTran.”
