MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Dane County Regional Airport has posted its second-best year for passenger traffic.

The airport says passenger traffic in 2012 was up 6.7 percent compared with 2011. In 2012, the airport recorded more than 810,000 passengers, second to the record year of 2004 when more than 847,000 passengers flew out of the airport on Madison's North Side.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports officials credit the boost to several service expansions.

The airport reports summer travel hit an all-time high in 2012 with passenger records set in June, July and August.
