PASCO, Wash. —

Tri-Cities Airport officials told Port of Pasco commissioners that declining passenger traffic could threaten renovation plans.

At the current pace the airport should see about 300,000 boardings this year, down from 331,000 last year and the first decline since 2009.

The Tri-City Herald reports ( http://bit.ly/15Jn3Uu) the airport needs at least 251,000 boardings to provide revenue for a terminal project that would be funded in part with bonds repaid by passenger charges.

Airport Director Ron Foraker says boardings have dropped because of Hanford layoffs, federal spending cuts and some airlines offering fewer flights.
