The Gerald R. Ford International Airport set a new record  for passengers. In 2019, more than 3.5 million passengers flew in and out of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. It’s the seventh consecutive year of record setting travel that saw a 9.88-percent increase over 2018.

Gerald Ford International Airport President & CEO Tory Richardson said, “We have grown tremendously over the last seven years because we continue to add nonstop routes, state-of-the-art amenities and technology, and our guest first focus. We appreciate our loyal West Michigan passengers and visitors for choosing the Ford Airport in their travels. You are not only supporting local jobs and our local economy, but the more you fly with us, the more we will grow.”
