In numbers from the city of Dallas aviation department, 1.27 million people got on and off airline flights at the city airport last month, up 63.8 percent from the 775,308 who used Love Field in July 2015.
Southwest Airlines by itself saw a jump of more than 400,000 passengers year over year, going from 747,893 to 1.15 million. The second biggest carrier, Virgin America, had 87,138 passengers. In July 2015, it was flying out of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and carried only 40,125 passengers.
The July numbers mark the biggest month – both in numbers and percentage gain – since the Wright amendment went away on Oct. 13 and airlines could fly nonstop to any U.S. city out of Love Field.
