PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – The Palm Springs International Airport surpassed
its all-time passenger record for the month of November this year, the sixth
straight monthly record broken, officials announced today.
The total passenger count for November was 271,944, with the previous
record set in 2018 at 245,841, according to officials.
On top of that, the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend was the single
busiest day the airport saw since the start of the pandemic.
Airport officials did not expect passenger numbers to rebound to pre-
pandemic levels until 2023, but since June, the airport has set passenger
records each month.
PSP officials attributed the streak of records to more year-round
flights, more airlines at the airport and decreasing fares.
December 2019 offered 164,990 departing seats, while this December
will offer 192,550.
