Despite weather delays and flight cancellations, the Quad City International Airport is reporting positive numbers for the month of February, as well as for the past year. In fact, the harsh winter may have helped.

Figures compiled by the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County show that the number of passengers at the airport in Moline, Ill. rose by two percent last month compared to January. The year-to-date comparison also shows an increase of more than 400 passengers than during the same period in 2013, which airport officials say is pretty good, considering the winter weather and the loss of the low-cost airline, Air-Tran in January of 2012. They say the increase in the number of flights offered by Allegiant Airlines has helped bridge the gap.

The number of passengers flying Allegiant increased by 30 percent in February and by 17 percent for American Eagle. The number of passengers for Delta Airlines was down by two percent and dipped 20 percent for United Airlines.

Allegiant started slow in the Quad Cities market, first offering service to Las Vegas, then Phoenix/Mesa and Tampa Bay. Then, it added service to Orlando/Sanford and Punta Gorda near Ft. Myers--all warm-weather destinations that proved to be popular this winter.
