INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis International Airport leaders say it saw a record number of 8.77 million passengers last year.

Airport officials say its number of passengers on both arriving and departing flights jumped about 3 percent from 2016, following a 6.4 percent jump from 2015. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports the 2017 passenger figure topped the airport's previous record of 8.52 million passengers set in 2005.
