PORTLAND, Maine — The Portland International Jetport says the number of passengers in March dropped for a third consecutive month.

Greg Hughes, the airport’s marketing director, says the number of passengers was 132,959, or a drop of 1 percent from a year ago.

But he says it was the airport’s second-best March. And he says the airport fared better than a projected nationwide decline of 7.3 percent for the month.
