Does anybody else think a new network will singlehandedly increase passenger volume by 15 to 25%? Without taking other factors into account? GTAA claims it will.
Using 2002 as a reference, with 26,000,000 passengers that year, and a 15% increase in passengers, which is the lower end of GTAA's estimated increase in passenger flow as a result of the new network, the airport will see at least an additional 3,900,000 passengers per year. I have a hard time believing that. In order to get increases like that across the board, there must be very significant cost savings passed on to the operaters and hence the consumers. With YYZ
being something like the 10th most expensive airport in the world, they'll be lucky to see any increase in the number of passengers, nevermind 15 to 25% more because of the new network.
, my little rant is over. No disrespect at all to Yukimizake. It was a great piece of news. I just want to get some discussion going on this matter.
