Numbers released by the Rhode Island Airport Corp. show 356,974 passengers traveled through the airport in July. That was up more than 4 percent compared with the same month last year.

The number of passengers at T.F. Green has declined overall since the economic downturn began in 2008. The airport saw a 6 percent drop last year compared with 2011. Passenger counts have been up so far in 2013 compared to 2012.

People who make round trips are counted twice in the statistics.
