SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Airlines are adding more flights after Shreveport Regional Airport saw a major spike in passenger activity.

Nearly 18,000 people flew through the airport in June which is an increase of 47% as compared to May.

Director of Airports for the Shreveport Airport Authority Wade A. Davis said, “Thank you to each and every passenger who flew out of Shreveport first. Your use of Shreveport Regional Airport has prompted the airlines to add additional flights this month from Shreveport despite the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Here are some of the additional flights that airlines are offering at Shreveport Regional Airport:

  • Allegiant – offering non-stop service to three destinations again this summer, Destin, Orlando, and Las Vegas. Destin service has also been extended past Labor Day this year, with twice-weekly flights through Oct. 26.
  • American – now offering two daily flights to Charlotte International Airport and five flights a day to Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport.
  • Delta – now operating three flights a day to Atlanta in July and will increase to four daily flights in August.
  • United – continues to offer two flights a day to their Houston hub and the airport is hopeful that Denver may be added back to the schedule later this fall.
