BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Last year was a record year for air passengers in Bangor.
Airport officials say nearly 550,000 people flew out of Bangor in 2017...a 10% increase from the year before.
From May on, Bangor International Airport had 8 consecutive record breaking months.
Officials attribute the growth to an increase in seats from the airlines and increased demand to fill those seats.
This year marks the airport's 50th anniversary.
