Punta Gorda Airport set another new passenger record in March.

More than 221,000 passengers flew in and out of the airport, an increase of 15 percent from the same time in 2018.

The rapid growth has made the airstrip in Charlotte County the third fastest-growing airport in the country.
Allegiant has more than quadrupled its destinations from PGD, from less than a dozen in 2013 to nearly 50 currently.
