Airlines added more than 20 new flights at Louis Armstrong International Airport previous year, helping boost daily traffic to an average of 150 departing flights and more than 21,000 available seats on incoming and outgoing planes, according to a news release from the airport.

The 48.5 million passengers - arriving and departing - at McCarran International Airport in 2017 marked the busiest year in the airport's almost 70-year history. That number follows 11.1 passengers in 2016 and 10.6 million in 2015, according to the airport's website.

The continued growth at Dublin Airport is fantastic news for the Irish economy. We finished the year with a 42.8 percent increase in cargo traffic and a 29.7 percent increase in fuel. The previous passenger record of 47.7 million was set in 2007.

Chairwoman of the Spokane Airport Board, Nancy Vorheez, attributes the record setting number to the investment by American, Southwest, and United Airlines in new, nonstop services to several USA cities.

Short-haul traffic increased by 4% to 25.3 million, while long-haul passenger numbers increased by 19% to 4.3 million.

Retail powerhouse Amazon is disrupting retail yet again, with the opening of its checkout-free Amazon Go grocery store in Seattle. The first store is located near the corner of Seventh Avenue and Blanchard Street, just north of Seattle's Downtown area.

The vast bulk of the growth has occurred in the past four years with passenger traffic increasing by 47pc between 2014 and 2017. About 940,000 additional people took flights between Dublin and continental European destinations a year ago.

This year will see Dublin Airport welcome its first direct service to Asia Pacific as Cathay Pacific launches a Dublin-Hong Kong service in June. There was also increased capacity on flights to and from Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto and Washington DC.

More than 12 million people traveled through the New Orleans airport in 2017, marking another record year for air travel in the city.

Harrison added: "We're expecting further transatlantic growth this year with new Aer Lingus routes to Philadelphia and Seattle, a new Air Canada service to Montreal, and expansions to some existing North American routes".
