Booming Edmonton International setting new records monthly
Leaves Vancouver in its contrail as a destination for WestJet flights
Gary Lamphier, The Edmonton Journal

EDMONTON - Canada's fastest growing major airport? It's no contest -- Edmonton International Airport takes the crown.

In fact, June was the busiest month on record for EIA, with nearly 508,000 passengers shuffling through the terminal.

That marked the 18th straight month of double-digit growth, says Edmonton Airports CEO Reg Milley, and an eye-popping 22.2-per-cent increase over June 2006, when 416,000 travellers enjoyed the airport.


On a year-to-date basis, traffic volumes rose an impressive 18.7 per cent, to well over 2.9 million, EIA says. Calgary International Airport, the nation's second-fastest growing major airport, posted traffic growth of 10.6 per cent in the first five months of 2007, to nearly 4.9 million passengers.

At current growth rates, Milley figures Edmonton could hit the six- million-passenger mark for 2007.

After mapping out the airport's long-term projections, he's also forecasting double-digit growth rates to continue for the next five years . . .

I see YEG's official June numbers aren't out yet, but yup that airport is booming...but I'm still waiting for WS to add YEG-YOW.

Except YYZ, most airports in the country are booming at the moment. YOW and YUL are up 7-8% YTD, which is pretty good considering we don't have any black liquid out here. YOW is currently on pace to top well over 4 million pax this year for the first time ever. Amazingly YUL's growth has been strong enough for at least the time being fend off YYC to keep the # 3 spot in the country.

The strong pax numbers nationwide are a reflection of the strong Canadian economy as a whole.

I noticed that AC has droppped the YLW flights....I presume it has to do with yields..

Still puzzeld with the US flights....I know during the summer transborder out of YEG slows down a bit, but 2 weeks ago, my inlaws had a tough time finding flights to YEG....(really expensive given limited avialability)

Just paid 1500 for flights to the mid-west via ORD.
CRAZY! Flights were packed on the E-170

Heard people trying to get on the flight to Denver when I was leaving, the lady said it was over booked.

The United lines are out of control.

Sounds like SFO is doing well with UA! LAX is rumoured to be getting some competition starting the winter season.

more stats:

Edmonton International is posting double-digit percentage passenger volume increases in all major market segments.

Domestic – 20.7% (June) and 15.3% (year-to-date)
U.S. – 12.2% (June) and 21.3% (year-to-date)
International –182.9% (June) and 77.7% (year-to-date)
The more than twofold increase in international passengers from June 2006 to June 2007 is driven by Air Canada’s non-stop service to London-Heathrow. Other international destinations are also on a major upswing. In the first half of 2007, Mexico continued its growth as the largest and fastest growing international destination for Edmonton, and most other sun destinations showed triple-digit increases over 2006. International flights have quadrupled since last summer, jumping to 12 departures per week from three.

On the domestic side, Sunwing’s new non-stop Toronto service and Air Canada’s summer non-stop service to Halifax helped propel domestic traffic to new highs. WestJet continues to expand rapidly at Edmonton International with almost 40 per cent of all seats dispatched belonging to the Alberta-based airline. Edmonton International also replaced Vancouver earlier in the spring as WestJet’s third largest hub.

From July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007, almost 5.7 million passengers used Edmonton International.

Um, good luck getting to YEG from SLC if you're a CRJ-hater. One might as well just stick it out on the RJ for a couple of hours. Concerning YEG-LAX, the ERJ-145 is more comfortable than the CRJ-200, but not as good as the CR7 with AVOD AC flies on the route. In addition to that, I doubt the 145 will be able to stack up against the connections at both YEG and LAX with AC and the other members of Star Alliance.

Once DL starts taking delivery of more 738s next year, this will at the very least free up some MD-90s to cover at least once flight from YEG and YYC to SLC. then perhaps DL can put one of the OO CRJs on a more appropriate trans-border route such as YQL-SLC since there is some O&D on this route.  biggrin

If it's Oil what is driving YEG boom, then IAH by CO, DFW by AA and EWR by CO would come anytime soon. Also I think there's room for ANC (by AS?), GLA/PIK (if not flown already) and MTY (by ?).

I haven't even been in the new terminal. The expansion of flights is great news though. It was quite a boring airport to get stuck in before. The AC Maple Leaf lounge was so dinky. The need to fly or drive to Calgary for so many flights is a huge issue for Edmontonians. For those of you who don't know there is a huge rivalry between Edmonton and Calgary in everything. Think the rivalry between the Bo Socks and the Yankees and project that to everything and you get the idea  Smile. So it rankles them that the airport to the south has better services. More head offices are located in Calgary by far than Edmonton so that drives much more traffic through the airport there. I actually believe Calgary has overtaken Vancouver or is projected to shortly in the number of company head offices. Edmonton has the oil and government traffic but not the same level of other corporate travel.

One of the reps that works for Air Canada at YEG has told me that the LAX flight is packed, and was told a while back that it was going to be upgauged. But that never happened.

If Delta does actually pull into LAX, it is only a matter of time before AC or UA pick up the slack.

One of the major problems for AA and CO is that they don't have any prime slots open at YEG for Transborder flights. with the new south terminal needing expanding the room is limited. Rumours has it that AA was unable to start a DFW flight because of this issue.

I believe the ERAA needs to adjust there terminal expansion to ensure they have enough gates and passenger room. Right now at around 6 million and growth predicted to grow by at least 10% each year for the next five, YEG is looking at needing that new south terminal sooner than the expected completion of the new North terminal wing.

On a side note. Sunwing is now offering winter charters from Edmonton.

Unfortuantely, the new plan for the airport remains extremely conservative....nothing concrete that recognizes the growth projections....ya ya, 1000 new stalls!!!!!

The old EAA board was a joke. They never understodd the airline business.

Let's see if they can really push AC and WS and the US carriers to at least upgrade the existing weak service of RJs and props to the US...

Lets not forget that YYC is also a Hub for AC,so even if a route is packed or busy from YEG that has little impact on AC's thinking.I flew YEG-LAX 3 month's ago,and it wasnt nonstop I was put through YEG-YYC-LAX by AC.I wasnt happy about that considering we have the nonstop flight but that was how it went.Next time I will use US and go through PHX if I cannot get on the AC nonstop.In october I head to England with my wife,I tried to get on the AC nonstop YEG-LHR and couldnt,we are now going YEG-YYZ-LHR on AC.I am not a fan but if our flights are that packed it cant be a bad thing....

AC non-stop loads are in the high 99% with average prices over YVR/YYC.

Like Falcon7x said AC is not going to focus to much on this considering their attention is on YYC because of hubbing. YEG is a reactionary market depending on competition. That is why AC is slow entering the IAH market...they know that CO is still not able to enter YEG and is targeting other markets. AC Canada will add a IAH flight, but not until they fell CO is able or willing to approach the YEG market once again.
