Denver International Airport set a record in March for the number of international passengers in one month, according to a news release.
Overall passenger traffic also continued to climb in 2014, the airport said.
 The number of passengers traveling on international flights jumped from 190,720 in March 2013, to 229,860 in March 2014.
That’s a hefty increase of 21 percent.
Overall, international traffic increased 23 percent through the first three months of 2014 compared to the same time in 2013.
“In March 2014, all three of our largest partners, United, Southwest and Frontier, showed an increase in passengers over March of 2013,” said Kim Day, Denver manager of aviation.
