Kansas City International Airport continued to lose traffic in March, but officials expect that trend to reverse with an improving economy.

Passenger traffic at KCI fell 7.8 percent, to 810,006 passengers, in March 2013 compared with March 2012. The airport has experienced monthly declines for some time now as the economy led to a dip in  both business and vacation travelers.

Despite the decline in traffic, KCI management remains optimistic about future traffic, projecting slow improvement through the second half of the year.
