First-quarter commercial passenger boardings at Grand Junction Regional Airport fell to their lowest level in seven years, a disconcerting setback for an important economic driver that has otherwise held strong in the face of the region’s slow recovery from the recession.
A total of 44,196 passengers boarded planes headed out of Grand Junction in January, February and March, a 12 percent drop compared to the 50,245 who bought plane tickets for the first three months of 2014, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics and the airport. Those three months last year marked the best first quarter in the airport’s history.
