WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. -- The Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport is on track to exceed its goal of having 8,000 passengers for the year.
Airport manager Terry Moore says more than 2,100 passengers flew from the airport during the second quarter. That's the highest second-quarter total in six years.
Moore says airport officials had hoped passenger traffic in June would exceed 800 but the total was 736. He says the airport's carrier, Silver Airways, canceled five flights because of maintenance issues and one because of bad weather.
The Parkersburg News and Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1b6LM5R ) reports that Moore discussed the passenger numbers Tuesday during a meeting of the airport's board.
