In yesterday’s news, the subject of passenger statistics came up. As the Marketing Manager here at Bangor International, part of my job is to keep track of passenger statistics. We are pleased to report that there has been a lot of growth in the last few years. Since 2008, we have grown by more than 100,000 passengers for a total of more than 460,000 passengers in 2012. So far in 2013, BGR is up 5.3% in passenger growth.
BGR is pleased that we have been able to meet the demand for more seats in the last few years. Our capacity (number of seats on the planes serving BGR) has increased by 37,000 seats so far this year, thanks to our partner airlines.
Currently flights from Bangor International are overlapping time slots so that there are flights to several cities all within a short time period. It is recommended that you allow an extra 30 minutes to your usual check-in time when departing so that you don’t feel rushed or stressed (and so you don’t miss your flight.) Airlines recommend that you be here two hours before the scheduled departure time.
BGR thanks everyone for flying out of Bangor and we work continuosly with the airlines for more seats and service to more destinations and connecting cities.
