Fresh off a major expansion in its terminal, some record-setting numbers suggest Saskatoon's airport is continuing to grow.

With passenger volumes up 4.4 per cent, the Saskatoon Airport Authority expects to break last year's record number of more than 1.3 million passengers.

Jamie Milton, an employee at Uniglobe Travel, said her company is busier than ever.

"The flights are busier and finding space available on short notice, it just isn't happening like it used to," Milton said.

The John G. Diefenbaker International airport is now the 12th busiest airport in Canada. There are also more options for passengers than ever with seven scheduled airlines now operating in Saskatoon.

William Papenfus, who was heading to South Africa with his family, said he hasn't noticed any delays compared to other years.

"It's easy," Papenfus said. "The parking is easy. The line up is usually pretty good. Security is usually pretty great as well."
