DALLAS - More than a million passengers got on or off flights at Dallas Love Field in December — a 46.5 percent increase from December 2013.

The City of Dallas reported that the airport handled 1,041,733 passengers, compared with 711,082 in December 2013, an increase of 330,651.

The elimination of the Wright Amendment in October helped spur the sharp increase in traffic at Love Field.

Since then, Southwest Airlines has expanded its schedule from 118 daily departures to 153, including four that began in early January. Virgin America Inc. has moved its operations from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and now offers 13 daily departures.

Delta Air Lines Inc. has also replaced 50-seat regional jets with 110-seat mainline jets for its five daily departures to Atlanta.
