RICHMOND, Va. - Passenger traffic at Richmond International Airport dipped slightly in 2012.

Figures from the Capital Region Airport Commission show that passenger traffic fell from 3,179,956 in 2011 to 3,167,294 in 2012, a decline of less than 1 percent.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( http://bit.ly/X6vkIq) reports that the figures released Tuesday also show December's passenger traffic fell 2 percent from 249,617 in 2011 to 244,514.

Airport president and CEO Jon E. Mathiasen says he's satisfied with the numbers, considering the national increase in airline fares and the economy.
