Corridor Business Journal: The Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids broke its annual passenger record for the third consecutive year in 2019. The total passenger number in 2018 was 1.2 million. November set another monthly record, with 109,446 total passengers. That total is 8.2% higher than the number of passengers in November 2018. The record was already broken with two weeks remaining in the year. Passenger numbers beyond that date got a boost with two charters taking Iowa Hawkeye fans to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.
