PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is reporting a new record for total passengers last year.

Airport officials say Sky Harbor served more than 44 million travelers in 2015.

That's a 4.5 percent increase in total passengers compared to 2014.

The previous record for annual passengers was set in 2007 when Sky Harbor served nearly 42.2 million passengers.

Airport officials say Sky Harbor set a single-day passenger record on Feb. 2, 2015 — the day after Super Bowl 49 was played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Sky Harbor also served more than 4.2 million passengers last March, making it the busiest month in the airport's history.
