The numbers are in! Detroit Metropolitan Airport set a new record for origin and destination (O&D) traffic in 2016. O&D passengers are those who are not connecting at DTW, but beginning or ending their trip at the airport. This news comes on the heels of DTW announcing total passenger traffic grew to more than 34 million passengers in 2016, a year-over-year increase of nearly a million.
Our team is proud to participate in the ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design & Construction Symposium. Real Estate Director Wendy Sutton started the day by moderating a panel on land use planning, protecting airport assets and ensuring the greatest benefit. This afternoon, Senior Project Manager Theresa Samosiuk is sharing our Runway 4L-22R success story, from sustainability honors to cost savings. Our partners C&S Companies and RS&H are also on the #AirportSymp
panel providing their perspective on the project and their expertise.
The new Airport Authority CEO, Joe Nardone, shares his thoughts on leadership and the future of Detroit Metro Airport. Check out The Detroit News article, photos and video created by Leonard Fleming and Max Ortiz. http://ow.ly/B9Qe3092HWA

Happy Valentine's Day from Detroit Metro Airport! To show we care, our Airport Ambassador volunteers and our Customer Connections team, comprised of DTW employees, handed out Valentine's Day gifts in our terminals today. They surprised our passengers with delicious Detroit-made Sanders chocolate! #DTWCares
This afternoon, Detroit Metropolitan Airport was the site of a peaceful demonstration organized by the Women’s March on Washington-Michigan. More than 2,000 people participated in five locations throughout the McNamara Terminal. The Airport Authority Public Safety team coordinated with the organizers to ensure demonstrators’ voices could be heard, airport operations could continue without interruption and that ultimately everyone remained safe. There were no arrests. The Airport Authority would like to thank the Romulus Police Department, Michigan State Police, Dearborn Police Department and the local Homeland Security teams for their assistance.

Tickets can be purchased now at http://www.Aeromexico.com
