New data released shows that Indianapolis International Airport wasn’t as busy and tickets were pricier last year.
Passenger boarding’s fell by 2.2 percent last year, to 3.68 million, which is about the level of 2003.
Although they don’t have the exact numbers totaled yet, that means less in the way of income from concessions and parking.
Airlines also are using fewer planes, which reduces landing-fee income for airports. Airline mergers have resulted in fewer flights being offered at certain airports.
One thing that increased was fares.
The average fare from Indianapolis International in mid-2012 was $391, compared with $367 in mid-2011.
