Fewer passengers boarded planes at Indianapolis International Airport in 2012 than at any other time during the past decade.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that passenger boardings fell by 2.2 percent last year to 3.68 million. According to airport records, that's the lowest since 2003 and nearly 6 percent below projections.

Boardings at the airport peaked in 2005, at 4.26 million.

The IBJ reports fewer passengers and airline mergers that have reduced the number of flights have caused fares to increase.

Airport Board President Michael Wells says the airport might lease some of its own office space to private users and move its staff to less expensive space because of declining revenues.

The airport also is looking at ways to generate more money from its parking garage.
