San Antonio International Airport

There’s mixed news for passengers who rely on San Antonio International Airport.  In a previous story, Texas Public Radio reported that airlines have cut the number of flights between San Antonio and Mexico, and the number of passengers flying those routes has dropped 21 percent over the past year.  But airport officials say domestic service is growing.   What does that mean for specific destinations?  And are historically higher-than-average ticket prices becoming more competitive?
