KAMLOOPS - Six months into the year and the Kamloops Airport is starting to see bigger jumps in travellers coming through the gates.

Traveller numbers increased by more than six per cent over last year for June, the biggest increase Fulton Field has seen so far in 2015.

In total more than 25,000 travellers passed through the gates last month, bringing the year to date totals to more than 158,500, up from just over 157,000 in the first six months of 2014.

In a release today, July 16, the airport reports all routes to and from Kamloops are performing well.

Commercial and private aircraft movements also increased and are partially attributed to the earlier than normal start to the wildfire season.

Currently the main runway is under reconstruction but is being coordinated to minimize impacts by performing the majority of the work overnight.
