Sky Harbor Airport saw higher numbers of passengers in April.

Sky Harbor Airport is more crowded this spring. 5.3 percent more crowded to be exact.

Airport Spokeswoman Deborah Ostreicher said the increase is indicative of an improving economy, “Airport and airport passenger traffic generally a direct reflection of the economy and that is what we are seeing here. The downturn in the numbers was a reflection on the economy and we think that the upturn is the same.”

She said along with higher traffic more people are parking, which is a major source of revenue for the airport.
