ROCHESTER, Minn. - Since the beginning of the year, the Rochester International Airport has seen a 52% increase in passengers.

More traffic at the airport calls for more staff to meet the demand.

"With a 52 percent increase in passengers, we have a lot more people coming through and they still need to go through all those same processes here at the airport so with that, you need to increase your staffing levels to keep up with that growth," explains Tiana O'Connor, marketing and communications manager at RST.

The airport hosted a job fair last week and posted new job openings on Thursday on their Twitter page.
