Traffic will start to pick up significantly this week at Augusta Regional Airport.

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur gets underway Wednesday, and the Drive, Chip and Putt event is Sunday at Augusta National.  The first round of practice for the 86th Masters gets underway one week from today. Bush Field officials say they average 20 to 30,000 passengers a month at the airport, but they’re expecting at least that amount in one week this year.
