We move people. Lots of them. SAN served 18.7 million passengers in 2014, breaking the record set in 2007. SAN also set new records for total passenger boardings and international passengers.

Here’s our year in passenger numbers:

  • 18,756,997 – Total passengers last year, exceeding the previous record of 18,326,734 set in 2007 by 2.3 percent.
  • 672,972 – Total international passengers, a 7.2 percent increase over 2013, and the third consecutive year SAN had a record-breaking increase in this category.
  • 9,383,793 – In another important category, SAN set a record for total enplanements, or departing passengers.

And here are some of the factors that contributed to this record year:

  • Increase in the number of nonstop flights,
  • New routes and destinations,
  • Enhancements of Airport and airline capacity,
  • Steady improvement in the economy.

Our goal has always been to offer more and better air travel options, and to make flying in and out of San Diego as convenient as possible. These numbers show that our efforts are bearing fruit.
