The Airport Authority demolished an old storage building to make room for the additional parking just west of the terminal building. Airport Director Gene Olson says the space will make parking easier for passengers as the holiday travel season ramps up. The new parking is in addition to 100 spaces the airport built last year. &nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Thu, 14 Nov 2013 11:51:07 +0000 Alex Rusciano 14897 at http://peoriapublicradio.org Peoria airport adds new parking PIA experiences monthly passenger record http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/pia-experiences-monthly-passenger-record <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The Peoria International Airport broke an all-time monthly record for passengers using the facility. More than 56-thousand people flew in and out of Peoria in March. Airport Director Gene Olson says the record is due to its Punta </span>Gorda<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and Atlanta flights as well as its connecting destinations on Delta Airlines. The last all-time monthly record was set in June 2008 when there were slightly more than 55-thousand passengers. Olson says passenger activity is up more than eight-and-a-half percent so far over last year.
