Palm Springs International Airport Soars to New Heights,Breaking Passenger Records in 2023

In a remarkable feat, Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) achieved a historic milestone by surpassing its all-time record for passenger traffic in 2023. Welcoming over 3.2 million passengers, the airport soared past its previous record set in 2022, showcasing an impressive growth of nearly 9%.

Throughout the year, PSP set the stage for success by establishing eight new monthly passenger records, demonstrating a consistent upward trend in air travel demand within the Palm Springs region. The total passenger count for the year reached an outstanding 3,237,325, marking a significant leap from the 2,981,844 passengers in the preceding year.

Not only did PSP break records for passenger numbers, but it also achieved a new high in the number of available scheduled seats. With a 7.7% increase in 2023, the airport boasted 2,101,693 available seats, emphasizing the sustained growth and rising popularity of air travel through Palm Springs.

Harry Barrett, Jr., Executive Director of Aviation, expressed enthusiasm about the achievement, stating, “As we celebrate this accomplishment, we continue to actively elevate the airport experience with ongoing concessions upgrades and a remodel of our Bono concourse, nearing completion. Looking ahead, we are laying the groundwork for future growth through an innovative terminal expansion concept and Master Plan process.”

The anticipation for continued success in 2024 is evident, with the airport officials expecting a robust first quarter. Forecasts predict more than 650,000 passengers to pass through the airport during this period, solidifying PSP’s status as a key player in the air travel industry.

Aftab Dada, Airport Commission Chair, noted, “It comes as no surprise that Palm Springs International Airport has once again broken its own record for passenger traffic. This enthusiastic response from passengers attests to the unparalleled experience that only PSP can deliver.”
