Branson Airport Named Fastest Growing U-S Airport

By: Staff
Posted: Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Branson Airport has been named the fastest growing U-S airport in its category by Airline and Airport News & Analysis. The website says seat capacity at Branson Airport has more than doubled in only one year of service as a result of expanded AirTran flights, the addition of Frontier service and the development of Branson AirExpress.

Executive Director Jeff Bourk says the fact that the award is based on statistics makes the entire team proud as Branson Airport continues to offer low fares and convenience for passengers traveling from more and more cities to Branson.

This is such good news! I have been at the Branson airport 10 times this year either going, coming or picking up friends and family. I hope they continue to have so much success!

Even though I now live closer to Springfield airport, I FAR PREFER flying out of Branson... in fact we will be flying out of Branson in January to Disney World. It is much easier to get from the parking lot to your gate at Branson. The fares are also MUCH better. Unless you are going to a destination served by Allegiant Air, it costs a FORTUNE to fly out of Springfield. I hope Branson Airport continues to have great success in the future!

We checked Allegiant and they would not work for us. They only fly to Orlando two days a week... Friday and Monday. It works much better for Ann's vacation schedule to take a Saturday to Saturday trip. By the way... Allegiant no longer flies into Sanford... they use MCO. To me that is a big advantage since it will allow people to use the free Disney transit from MCO to WDW hotels.

Lucky!!! I wish I was going to Disney World too. We went a few years ago, and we want to go back. Love that place. But, we love Branson too! So we are going there for Thanksgiving.
