I just moved to Missoula from New York a few months ago, and as such, I've spent a decent amount of time at Missoula International Airport already. It's pretty convenient having an airport located just ten minutes from my house, even if I usually need a connecting flight to get where I'm going.

And, according to KPAX, Missoula International Airport is only growing. In October, they set an all-time record of 73.328 passengers, up 18% from where they were last year.

The likely reason is that Missoula itself is growing, and becoming a more and more popular destination to travel to. Luckily, the airport is still one of the easier airports I've ever been to - even the day before Thanksgiving, the busiest travel day of the year, I was able to check in and get through security in less than 15 minutes. Try doing that in New York, it's impossible.
