Travel Madness in March

April 24th, 2024 |

86,582 passengers fly through ABE

(Hanover Township, PA) – Its’ been two decades since Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) has reached this level of travel madness in March.

Last month, 86,582 passengers used ABE – the highest total for March since 2004 – and a 10.7% increase from March 2023.

“We were fortunate to avoid late season winter storms that could have impacted flight schedules. Additionally, ABE remains a popular resource for charter operations and some new destinations in recent months continue to create more opportunities for travelers to choose ABE,” said Thomas R. Stoudt, Executive Director, Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA).

By the numbers, Allegiant increased 18% and Delta passenger traffic jumped 3.3%. Meanwhile, American declined 6.4% and United decreased 1.6% from last March.

MCO is ready to go!

Next month, Lehigh Valley International Airport is excited for the launch of nonstop service to Orlando International Airport (MCO) aboard Allegiant Air. Flights are currently scheduled to operate on Thursdays and Sundays.

“We’ve consistently heard requests from Lehigh Valley air travelers regarding nonstop flights to MCO, and there’s always interest in more capacity for vacationers headed to Orlando theme parks. Now, Allegiant will help us deliver more options,” said Stoudt.

Allegiant will continue to provide daily connectivity to Orlando / Sanford Airport (SFB).

23,835,815 pounds of air cargo was processed through Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) in March – an increase of 0.8% from March 2023.
