Despite a dip in passenger numbers traveling out of Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in July and August, airport officials have a positive outlook headed towards fall.

The drop in passengers was largely caused by a series of flight cancelations by Spirit Airlines, the airport’s lone commercial carrier, according to Gabe Monzo, executive director of the Westmoreland County Airport Authority. Over a week in early August, Spirit experienced intermittent delays or cancellations of flights at Arnold Palmer and other airports reportedly due to operational challenges.
