Bradley International Airport has seen five years of growth in passenger traffic.

Bradley International Airport has achieved five consecutive years of year-over-year passenger growth, with a 6.2 percent spike in 2017, according to airport operator the Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA).

There were 6.4 million passengers last year, up from 6.1 million in 2016, according to CAA data.

That's up from 5.4 million in 2013.

Over that period, only 2014 saw higher growth, when traffic surged 8.4 percent, jumping from 5.4 million passengers in 2013 to more than 5.8 million in 2014, the agency said.

All told, over the past five years, Bradley has served more than 25 million passengers. Bradley passenger traffic is second only to Boston's Logan International Airport in New England, the agency said.

"As we continue to aggressively pursue the expansion of Bradley International Airport's route network, we're pleased to see the positive trend in our passenger ridership," CAA Board Chairman Charles R. Gray said. "The CAA will continue to prioritize efforts that will strengthen Bradley's high standing in the industry and role as an economic driver for the region."
