In February, the Colorado Springs Airport (COS) welcomed 172,463 total passengers, nearly 20 percent more than the same month last year. The airport also witnessed a 20 percent rise in enplanements as 86,968 people boarded a plane out of COS in February.  For the 12 months ended February, enplanements were up 15.7 percent year-over-year.

“The Colorado Springs community continues to support the growth of air service at COS and, once again, we have started 2024 on a strong note”, said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation. “We look forward to even more growth as we head toward summer.”

There were 110,323 departing seats for the month of February, a 19.4 percent increase from the same period last year, with an average load factor of 78.8 percent for the month, slightly higher than February 2023.
