Passenger traffic at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Calif., increased to 8.85 million in 2012, a 2.9% bump from 2011, according to figures released by Orange County airport officials.

“The addition of service to three new destinations in Mexico by AirTran and Interjet helped contribute to this growth,” said airport director Alan Murphy. “The overall increase in passengers, however, reflects both the new international service and improvements in the general domestic travel market.”
