The airport reported a passenger load increase of six percent compared to the second quarter of 2013. Revenue was $24.2 million, compared to $23.1 million for the same period in 2013. Earnings before interest, depreciation and taxes were $11.4 million, compared to $12.2 million in 2013 for the same period.
