Passenger traffic at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport dropped 1.4 percent in 2016.
That’s the first time the airport has reported a passenger decline since 2013 and the biggest decline since 2009.
It would appear that American Airlines is pulling back in Phoenix and that is the main reason for the drop in passenger numbers.
Both domestic travel and international travel numbers are down in 2016.
The Phoenix Business Journal just did a story on this subject.
