Less Than 600,000 Used LVIA in 2013
Over the past year, less than 600,000 passengers "enplaned" or "deplaned" a commercial aircraft at Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE). That's a 32% drop in the past two years. But the Airport's Executive Director, Charles Everett, even counts bus passengers, i.e. those who "enbussed" or "debussed" at the airport. If he persists in this thinking, his board ought to offer Trans-Bridge a sweetheart deal to relocate to ABE. That would really juice the numbers.
Incidentally, the United Bus to/from EWR 9Newark Liberty International Airport) is the fastest growing route out of ABE.
