Burlington International Airport in the US has recorded a 10.5% decline in June 2009 compared to the same month last year due to the global recession.

The drop in passenger traffic is the second highest since November 2000 when the total departing passengers dropped by 13.9%.

Through June, around 342,000 passengers boarded flights from the airport, registering a decline of 4.5% compared to the same period in the previous year.

The decline has resulted in the halt of all capital improvement and equipment improvement projects at the airport.

The airport could also see a further drop of 8% in passenger traffic as AirTran Airways, which serves these passengers, is expected to stop its Baltimore service in September 2009.

Burlington International Airport, however, is further planning to expand its service options by adding destinations from Burlington, including Boston, Charlotte, North Carolina and Baltimore.
