It’s probably done and funded by the express carrier no? It’s most likely part of the contract.

Re: "Vancouver (YVR) passenger volumes to return to 1995 levels this year"

If you look at 2008, traffic rebounded fairly quickly. 9/11 took a bit longer, but that was a different event entirely. From a financial perspective, there's nothing to say things won't start back on the upswing this year. It's a question of getting the general public back onto planes and I think t...

But I still believe that the BK could’ve either been avoided or at least delayed if not for 9/11 and the downturn that ensued. Either giving them more time in order to right the ship without the BK or some sort of wake up call that something needed to be done and fast. Perhaps some of the hardships...
