    BOSTON - Boston's Logan International Airport has set another passenger record.

    Massachusetts Port Authority officials said more than 29.3 million travellers passed through the airport in 2012.

    That's an increase of more than 416,000 passengers over 2011, which was the previous record high year for the airport.

    Officials say virtually all of the passenger growth occurred in international travel, which was up 9.8 per cent, or an additional 388,000 passengers.

    Domestic travel was up just a fraction of a per cent.

    Massport officials say the overall increase in passengers occurred even as the overall number of flights in and out of Logan dropped by more than 14,000, or nearly 4 per cent.

    There were nearly 356,000 flights in and out of the airport in 2012.
