Airport traffic continues up

Passenger traffic at Huntsville International Airport for the year through July is ahead of the 2004 count.

The number of passengers at the airport through July was 755,192, up 12.9 percent over the same period in 2004, according to figures released Tuesday at a meeting of the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority.
"I think we will have another record year if the (passenger growth) trend continues, and we anticipate that trend continuing," said Rick Tucker, the airport's executive director.

Tucker told authority members that the Senate Appropriations Committee last month approved its version of a spending bill for fiscal year 2006 for agencies including the Federal Aviation Administration. The bill directs the FAA to give priority consideration to discretionary grant money for building a new taxiway at Huntsville International Airport.
