Passenger counts have been gaining some altitude at Portland International Airport (PDX) and Oregon’s regional airports. In 2010, 13.2 million passengers passed through PDX, a 2% increase, but well below the 14.7 million peak in 2007. Through March, PDX boosted passengers 5.8%. Eugene, Medford and Redmond grew passengers 9.3%, 11.7% and 1.6% in 2010, respectively, and 12.7%, 1.6% and 5.8% through March. Domestic U.S. fares rose 5.2% in fourth-quarter 2010 to $337.
