The number of passengers using the Alpena airport continues to slowly climb.

A total of 549 enplanements were counted in July, down nearly 61% from the July 2019 total of 1,394.

“I am very pleased to see the July numbers considering our total for the months of April, May and June was only 308!,” said Steve Smigelski, airport manager. “Hopefully the ship is righting itself.”

The year to date enplanement total now stands at 3,241, less than half of the 6,693 flyers counted during the first seven months of last year.
