Palm Springs International Airport broke its all-time record for passenger traffic

PALM SPRINGS — Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) on Thursday announced a milestone, breaking its all-time record for passenger traffic with more than 3.2 million passengers in 2023.

The total passenger count for the year came in at 3,237,325, surpassing the previous record set one
year prior in 2022 by nearly 9%, when 2,981,844 traveled through PSP. Throughout 2023, PSP set
eight new monthly passenger records.

The airport also broke a previous record for most available seats in a year. The number of available
scheduled seats increased by 7.7% in 2023 to a record high of 2,101,693. These monumental
achievements highlight the sustained growth and increased demand for air travel through the Palm
Springs region.

“As we celebrate this accomplishment, we continue to actively elevate the airport experience with
ongoing concessions upgrades and a remodel of our Bono concourse which is nearing
completion. Looking ahead, we are laying the groundwork for future growth through an
innovative terminal expansion concept and Master Plan process,” said Harry Barrett, Jr., Executive
Director of Aviation. “We eagerly anticipate exceeding expectations in 2024 and striving to ensure
an unrivaled experience in air travel.”

“It comes as no surprise that Palm Springs International Airport has once again broken its own
record for passenger traffic,” said Aftab Dada, Airport Commission Chair. “This enthusiastic
response from passengers attests to the unparalleled experience that only PSP can deliver.”
Airport officials expect 2024 to be a strong year as well. The first quarter of this year is forecasted to bring more than 650,000 passengers through the airport during this time.
