Re: Canadian Airport 2017 Year-End Passenger Stats

The real problem with YQB's low numbers (1.67 million vs population of ~700k) is that the residents fly/travel at notably lower levels than the rest of Canadians and far, far lower levels than Americans. It has been catching up to some degree in recent years however.

You've gotta thing that as YQB gets closer to the 2 million mark that they'll finally be able to attract (at least seasonally) a daily nonstop to YHZ and to Western Canada.

YOW's year-end numbers are now out:

Dom: 3,813,672 / +3.7%
TB: 647,574 / -3.8% --> Like YEG, this started growing for the first time in eons in Q4. Approx. 128k off 2012's record.
Int'l: 378,431 / -3.0% --> Approx. 68k off 2012's record.
TTL: 4,839,677 +2.0%

If the transborder bleeding can stop and if YOW can attract an ULCC, there's an outside chance YOW could hit 5 million in 2018.
