BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - The Tri-Cities Regional Airport is reporting lower numbers for last year.
Passenger numbers for the fourth quarter of 2012 fell nearly 9%, and seating capacity was also down 5.5% compared to the same period in 2011.
The drop is attributed to the loss of American Eagle service to Chicago and scheduling adjustments from other carriers.
During the entire year, officials say more than 421,000 passengers used the airport.
