BURLINGTON, Vermont — The passenger count of people boarding flights at the Burlington International Airport was up 6.7 percent in October from a year earlier, but still off from other recent years.
For the month, 58,359 passengers boarded flights leaving Burlington, up from 54,916 in October 2012.
But figures from the airport show that more than 60,000 people boarded in Burlington every year from 2006 to 2011, with a peak of nearly 70,000 in 2008.
October was the second busiest month so far this year at the airport, topped only by August, when 61,325 people boarded planes.
