A record number of passengers traveled through Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport in 2019.
Blue Grass Airport saw 1,465,049 total passengers between its four airlines: Allegiant, American, Delta, and United.
That was a 7.6% total passenger increase over 2018 and was the eighth consecutive year the airport had seen a record number of travelers.
Blue Grass Airport has taken on several improvement projects in recent years, including expanding its long-term parking lot by 300 spaces and select curbside pick-up for Lyft and Uber drivers.
The airport is also planning to renovate two restaurants in 2020.

We have several projects underway to ensure we are continuing to offer excellent amenities and service in the years ahead.”
