The San Francisco International Airport had the highest rate of growth of international passengers last year than any other airport in the country.

Airport officials said the International Trade Administration reported that the airport

experienced a 9% increase in international travelers in 2015.

The increase is more than other major international airports such as John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Los Angeles

International Airport and Miami International Airport.

"Though our pursuit of smart traffic growth, SFO achieved a new milestone in 2015, serving a record 50 million total passengers," airport

director John Martin said.

"The International Trade Administration report on international traffic growth further highlights the success of our efforts, which include improved facilities, a keen eye on cost control and an unwavering commitment to the guest experience," Martin said.
