The Palm Springs International Airport surpassed its all-time passenger record for the month of November this year, the sixth straight monthly record broken, officials announced Tuesday.

The total passenger count for November was 271,944, with the previous record set in 2018 at 245,841, according to officials.

On top of that, the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend was the single busiest day the airport saw since the start of the pandemic.

Airport officials did not expect passenger numbers to rebound to pre-pandemic levels until 2023, but since June, the airport has set passenger records each month.

PSP officials attributed the streak of records to more year-round flights, more airlines at the airport and decreasing fares.

December 2019 offered 164,990 departing seats, while this December will offer 192,550.
