EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene Airport is on track to have 1 million passengers this year, a mark it has never hit.

Almost 400,000 passengers used the city-owned airport through the end of the May. Airport director Tim Doll tells The Register-Guard (https://is.gd/xu10Yr ) that a new daily flight to Phoenix began June 1, and that should push the 2017 total over a million.

Led by Delta and United, the number of passengers using the airport in May rose by nearly 6 percent compared with the same month last year. American Airlines is the carrier for the new flight to Phoenix.

Alaska Airlines and Allegiant Air also serve the Eugene Airport.
