​​​​​The Colorado Springs Airport (COS) welcomed over 20 percent more travelers during the month of November in comparison to the previous year and a staggering 49 percent when compared to 2019. Of these, 106,483 passengers boarded flights at COS, contributing to a total of 211,464 passengers for the month.

"We saw an increase of 20 percent in enplanements for November when compared to 2022 and 49 percent in comparison to November of 2019. This can be attributed to not only the uptick in new flights we’ve seen in 2023, but from the support of our community who choose to fly COS,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation.

In November, COS had 129,098 departing seats, with an average load factor of 82.5 percent – a notable increase over the previous year and a trend seen throughout 2023.

The Thanksgiving travel period saw over 41,000 estimated travelers fly through COS. On November 26, a historic day at COS, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recorded the highest traffic since the commencement of tracking in 2020, with nearly 5,000 people passing through the checkpoint.

Those traveling for the upcoming holiday season can also take advantage of discounted parking this season. COS is offering 50 percent off daily long-term parking (regular daily rate: $8.00/day) from December 20, 2023, to January 2, 2024.
