Sacramento International was state’s fifth-busiest airport in ’07
The Sacramento (CA) Business Journal
Sacramento International Airport was the fifth busiest airport in California in 2007, county officials said Friday, rising up one place from the year before and edging past San Jose International. Last year the airport saw a 30 percent increase in international travelers and a 4 percent increase in domestic passengers, for a total of 10,748,982 passengers. The increase in international flights was due to the debut of Air Canada, which began nonstop service to and from Vancouver. The airport’s other international flights are to various destinations in Mexico.
“Obtaining a route to Vancouver was the No. 1 air service priority of the Sacramento County Airport System for several years,” said G. Hardy Acree, director of airports.
