More and more people are continuing to choose the Burlington International Airport as the place to begin their trips.

For the second year in a row a record number of people boarded planes at the airport.

Officials say the increase was fueled by more Canadian travelers and new AirTran and JetBlue routes.

Just over 750,000 people boarded flights in Burlington last year. That was 7 percent more passengers than 2007. It marked the highest percent increase since a 9 percent jump in 2005.

Airport director Brian Searles says officials are thrilled with any growth in the current economy.
