It currently serves the local region's needs with four passenger air carriers and two integrator/cargo air carriers, along with a variety of general aviation users ranging from individual aircraft owner/operators to corporately-owned businesses that support the broader general aviation market. In 2015, the Airport served over 2.5 million passengers and nearly 25 thousand tons of air cargo.
