I just don't understand YOW, how can it be in decline as our nation's capital, surrounded by huge population centres and have only slightly more traffic overall than YHZ? Glad to see international up otherwise the overall decline would have higher. Ottawa isn't a large city, and it's fairly close t...Jump to post
Great to see a thread for my primary home airport. I think it's worth noting that HU recently extended its PEK-YYZ route to CKG, making it YYZ's first destination to secondary/inland Chinese cities. YVR has been getting all those secondary routes instead of YYZ (capacity or policy restrictions?) But...Jump to post
Another bold move by XiamenAir: it has applied to the CAAC for a 5-weekly FOC-CDG flight starting from Dec 2018, using its 788/789s. The schedule doesn’t seem to have been released yet.

I don't think much of the increase is driven by international flights (let alone inter-continental), the domestic growth in China is huge. For example, having flown out of Nanchang recently (a surprisingly busy place for somewhere that hardly anyone has heard of), that 39% growth will have been dri...Jump to post

Nice to see a thread like this! (Very appropriate too as my first post here, finally decided to sign up after years of browsing the forum ;) I wonder how much of the growth has been driven by new inter-continental routes. MF has been pretty aggressive in that sense, opening up routes from XMN to LAX...Jump to post
