Flights Out of Spokane International Drop in 2013
Spokane International Airport saw a small decrease in the number of passengers flying out of the city in 2013.
It may be more of a case of airlines dropping flights than people cutting back purposely on travel though. So if the demand is there, why are airlines reducing the number of flights available?
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
