The Grand Rapids airport reports a more-than 9 percent increase in passenger count in September over the same month last year.

The Ford International management thinks some of that is because of the new Southwest Airlines service.

Septembere was the largest increase in passenger traffic all year.

Executive Director Brian Ryks said, "We are very encouraged by the initial response we've seen to the new Southwest service from area travelers."
