    SANTA ROSA — Airline traffic at Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport in October was up from the previous month and nearly 6 percent above passenger volume a year before, according to figures released today.

    In October, 19,813 total passengers flew in and out of the airport, slightly above September’s total of 19,348 passengers, according to figures provided by Alaska Airlines, the airport’s only commercial carrier. That’s a 5.9 percent improvement from a year before.

    The number of passengers last month represents the most the airport has seen in October since commercial service returned to the airport in 2007.

    Year-to-date, 179,804 airline passengers traveled through the airport, an increase of 3.7 percent from the same 10-month period last year.

    Seattle-based Alaska Airlines, through its subsidiary Horizon Air, operates five flights a day from Santa Rosa to Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Diego. In June, Alaska Airlines started flights between San Diego and Santa Rosa, replacing service from Sonoma County to Las Vegas.
