Passenger traffic through Sea-Tac Airport is nearly two percent higher through July than last year’s record-setting pace, new airport figures show.

The airport reported some 19.13 million passengers used its facilities from the first of the year through July 31. That’s more than 361,000 more than in 2011’s first seven months.

In July alone, passenger traffic exceeded last year’s July traffic by 42,447, a 1.27 percent increase, the Port of Seattle said. The port owns and operates Sea-Tac.

Those increases were led by international business where passenger numbers through July were up by 5.92 percent.
