LOS ANGELES (AP) — A record 17.9 million foreign travelers passed through Los Angeles International Airport last year as the economy improved.

Airport officials say it's the largest international passenger volume since 2005 when the airport handled 17.5 million foreign travelers.

International travel has taken a hit in recent years amid a global economic slump.

Gina Marie Lindsey, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports, says domestic and overseas airlines are starting or expanding international service at the airport, the third busiest in the country.
