August was the busiest month in the history of the Sault Ste. Marie Airport.

The airport’s development corporation recorded 20,055 passengers transiting through the terminal last month, a 2.4 per cent increase over the same time last year, according to a Sept. 8 news release. The previous all-time monthly record was set last October at 20,040.

It was the second month in a row this summer that a passenver record’s been set. In July, the airport saw a record-setting 18,695 passengers posted for that particular month.

The airport is served by Air Canada Express, Bearskin Airlines, and Porter Airlines.

The corporations said the past 12 months of operation have seen 212,690 passengers flow through the airport. Eight of the past 12 months have set records for that month in a year.
