October business at Jackson Hole Airport was slow as usual, but the count of people getting on airplanes was still enough to push the facility past its 2015 year-end count.

The 18,711 enplanements at the airport during October pushed the count through the end of October to 318,086, past the 316,674 enplanements during all of 2015.

The October count also was a healthy increase over the 15,864 passengers who boarded during October 2015.

October is usually the third-slowest month for people flying out of Jackson Hole Airport. April and November are the least busy.

United Airlines accounted for the most passengers flying out, with 9,331 boarding a total of 80 flights. Delta and Skywest, the Delta Connection, flew 88 flights out and carried 7,444 people.

During the month, there was a total of 176 flights and 19,735 available seats, 94.81 percent of which were filled.
