Canadian Airports 2019 statistics

Mon Feb 11, 2019 5:00 pm

This thread is to carry-on the discussion about passenger statistics at Canadian airport throughout 2019.

Here's the link to the 2018 thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1392475&start=150

The first airport that I can find that has already reported stats for January 2019 is....

YOW - Ottawa

Jan-18 / Jan-19 / % Change
Dom: 278,662 / 272,963 / -2.0% - The decline can almost entirely be attributed to WS reducing YOW-YEG to seasonal*
TB: 66,302 / 66,581 / +0.4% - Not bad considering WS' cancellation of YOW-FLL and YOW-TPA
Int'l: 56,900 / 63,838 / +12.2% - Not surprisingly the only segment with added capacity is the one that grew
TTL 401,864 / 403,382 / +0.4%

12 Months Rolling / % Change vs Year End 2017
Dom: 3,996,510 / -0.1%
TB: 721,049 / + <0.1%
Int'l: 394,760 / +1.8%
TTL: 5,112,319 / + <0.1%

*6x weekly 73G (which is what YOW-YEG operated at last winter) at 80% LF almost exactly matches the loss in domestic passenger traffic.

I fully expect YOW to be like this in 2019 until Flair enters the marketplace, which will probably be in late May 2019.

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 to Montréal, which is a much larger city with a corresponding larger airport, so there goes some of the demand for Ottawa. There's also not that much business or tourism relative to Toronto or Montreal. I think it's reasonable that YOW doesn't have a comprehensive network or large passenger numbers.

Well overall YOW didn't actually decline in January 2019. By sector:
-Domestic was down (thanks to WS cuts and 4N's YOW-YZF-YXY service ended in early January and is now only operating summer seasonally and around holiday periods...4N are blaming massive YZF fee increases for the reduction in service);
-Transborder, was up but was essentially flat (again thanks to WS cuts being negated by CRJ increases on DL to LGA and AA to PHL); and
-International was up (thanks to no WS or AC cuts and gains on TS and WG respectively vs 2018).

Given WS' lackluster financials for 2018 they pulled YOW-YEG for the winter (along with all YUL transcons except a single daily YYC), in order to negate the massive "high-yielding" (ROFL) capacity increases they've chosen to fly on Swoop out of YHM, where there's apparently demand for 11x weekly YHM-YEG. I'm not sure how you can be taken seriously in East-Central Canada as a true "full service" alternative to AC when you don't fly YOW-YVR, YOW-YEG, YUL-YVR, YUL-YEG and YUL-YWG year-round. Similarly in almost all of Eastern Canada (including YHZ) they cut flying to Florida, including cutting all YUL service to again keep capacity increases in check while simultaneously massively increasing transborder service via Swoop at YHM.

It's tough to grow your traffic when capacity is removed.

YOW suffered from a lack of hardly any new capacity from 2012 to 2017. 2018 was the first time that YOW saw any meaningful capacity additions in years. It's no coincidence that YOW's best year since 2012 was when there actually was new capacity added to the marketplace. YHZ did handle 800k fewer pax in 2018. It's a bit of a gap and YOW did hit a bit of a milestone in 2018 by surpassing the 5 million mark.

It's large by Canadian standards at about 1.4 million, which is about 3 times the size of Halifax, but like you said when you're squeezed between the two largest metro areas in the country, 1.4 million does seem small, even if it's in the same ballpark as Calgary and Edmonton. Again, while not attracting the same number of tourists as Toronto or Montreal, the Capital region still attracts over 8 million visitors a year. However, most of those are of the driving type or they're of the fly into YYZ or YUL variety and then hop on a tour bus to see Ottawa.

YHZ benefits from it's isolation from any other major population centres - no domestic city > 200k population within 1,000km driving distance is certainly helpful to YHZ's pax numbers, while YOW is squeezed between the two biggest metro areas in the country. It's easy to be overlooked when you're in the shadow of those two. That isolation also means it's a regional hub for Atlantic Canada. YHZ's gotta be at least 25% connecting traffic whereas YOW is more like 5% and is by far the least connected major airport in the Country.

To add to Dominion301 excellent post, driving from Ottawa's center to YUL is about 2h drive, in comparison, flight time is 45-50min + mct of 40 min at YUL for dom/intl flights, that means it's only 30 min faster flying if everything goes according to plan (probably even more since you could time your drive better with departing flight schedule rather than a longer connection) that means many people choose to drive from Ottawa to YUL to catch a flight especially for intl or tb

Thanks to you and westaust for the compliments.

Keep those pax stats rolling in, in 2019. I've gotta admit I'm a bit of a pax stats junkie. :P

Out of curiosity ACCS300, do you have any idea as to why YHZ do not publish pax stats on a monthly or quarterly basis? Other than YTZ (which are essentially maxed out at around 2.8-2.9 million pax per annum), they're the only large airport in Canada to not do so. A long time ago, someone showed me YHZ's monthly stats one year (guessing 2004 or 2005). YHZ's June-August traffic would spike by about 50% vs some other months. That level of seasonality explains why YHZ has so much summer seasonal transatlantic service, yet only 4x weekly LHR winter service.

Maybe some day, someone will figure out that what has been done in summer to Europe out of YHZ could easily be replicated at YOW...again so hard to do when you're overshadowed by YUL and YYZ and it seems like YOW's air service development is lacklustre at best. Having said that, I fully expect YOW will be part of Flair's February 13th announcement.

If YOW wants to replicate the YHZ TATL summer spike, then they need to import an ocean.

I can definitely relate to what you are saying.

Until just a few years ago, we stuck from YUL to connect in YYZ for most destinations - and often backtracking. (It was logical for AC as they wanted to achieve critical mass in Toronto before expending secondary hubs...)

And as you said, domestic traffic is relatively weak around here as it's so easy to just drive Boston, New York or Toronto.

Calgary or Halifax on the other hand...

Absolutely no idea. YHZ is my hometown but I live near YVR now, follow YHZ closely though but no clue as to the way they publish their stats. Yes, the summer spike is impressive and suspect will continue with the introduction of more narrowbodies crossing the pond from YHZ.

Given all the highly paid public sector workers in YOW with 6 or more weeks of annual vacation I'm surprised that their O&D traffic isn't far higher. I suspect there is more to the low statistics than driving to Montreal. The only people that would drive to Montreal would be for overseas and maybe Florida flights. The international sector is the only one that is doing relatively well at YOW. How would the domestic/trans-border demand problems be attributed to being between YYZ and YUL? People don't drive to YUL to go to New York or Halifax and so on. Is there a cultural/economic issue that explains the problem? I've brought this issue up in the past but it's always the same answer that I think is only in small part the reason.

Definitely most of the driving, busing, training leakage to YUL is to overseas destinations, but also some to southern destinations. It is huge though. For example, if the AF/KL buses only operate at a very low 50% LF, that alone is 60k pax leaked to YUL before adding anything else.

I’d hardly call 1 good international month booming as YOW is still about 60k international pax below the 2012 peak. The only reason why that is the case is lack of capacity. YOW never had more transatlantic destinations (LHR, LGW on 2 airlines, CDG, GLA and AC’s then brand-new FRA flight) than when Zoom was around and ditto for sun destination capacity. That’s never been replaced...to date.

Domestic surpassed the 4 million mark in 2018 and has been the only sector where moderate growth occurred from 2015 to 2017, while transborder recouped a good chunk of prior year capacity losses. However, that too is 50k pax below its peak, again not due to lack of demand, but lack of capacity. In other words, if transborder and international had remained stagnant since their peaks, the airport would be at around 5.3 million in 2018 instead of 5.1. It’s tough to grow a market segment, when there aren’t enough seats on offer in a marketplace to do so. I guess we’ll see what Flair does on Wednesday.

No new route announcements from Flair today, only the promise of "future growth" as they released their new livery.

YUL January stats:

Domestic : 490 (475) +3.3%

International : 701 (623) +12.5%

Transborder : 340 (321) +5.9%

Total : 1,532 (1,420) +7.9%

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wow, international @ +12.5%

Most of the increase is "hub" related, and a good bunch is USA <=> International


(FWIW, YMX got a 1.3% increase in movements. Still inching forward with more cargo and less BBD flight testing)

YOW February

YOW's February pax stats are out and not surprisingly they look a lot like January:

Sector Feb-18 / Feb-19 / % Change
Dom: 277,498 / 277,051 / -0.2% - again no WS YEG flight
TB: 70,847 / 68,217 / -3.7% - again WS Florida cuts
Int'l: 51,918 / 59,598 / +14.8% - not surprisingly the only sector with capacity added
TTL: 400,263 / 404,866 / +1.1%

Sector YTD 2018 YTD 2019 % Change
Dom: 556,160 / 550,014 / -1.1%
TB: 137,149 / 134,798 / -1.7%
Int'l: 108,818 / 123,436 / +13.4%
TTL: 802,127 / 808,248 / +0.8%

12 Months Rolling / % Change vs Year End 2018
Dom: 3,996,063 / -0.2% - slightly below 4M temporarily
TB: 718,419 / -0.3%
Int'l: 402,440 / +3.8% - first time since 2015 that YOW's been above 400k Int'l pax in a 12 month period
TTL: 5,116,922 / +0.1%

Since the only MAX ops at YOW this winter are a couple of weekend Rapidair rotations, I wonder if YOW's March numbers will actually benefit via pumping substantially more connections via YOW, unlike most other major Canadian airports? Taking a peek at AC a week from now, the only changes at YOW appear to be some minor UPGAUGES to YQB, YUL and YYC.

I am surprised someone hasn't taken up narrow body for TATL travel from Ottawa

I don't know about you guys, but every time I've been to YUL in the past year or so, it's been packed. The main terminal size can't really sustain the increased amount of pax going through. With the airport soon hitting 20M pax/yr and even more flights announced (GRU), when will ADM work on improving the flow...

Food for thought.....last year in August, YUL handled close to 2.1 million passengers. If every month was as busy as August, YUL would handle 25 million passengers/year.

But yes, YUL is getting quite crowded during busy times. Construction of the new terminal wont start just yet. Other more pressing issues need to be dealt with first. Like repaving runway 06L/24R, widening the departures level access road to the terminal and rebuilding the multi-level car park (which is mostly at end of life) to accommodate the REM.

Repaving 06L/24R starts at the end of this month. Only the threshold of runway 24R (until B3 taxiway) will be repaved this year (as it's in the worst condition). Props and lighter jets will still be able to use the runway, from B3 down. The runway will fully reopen end of June, for peak summer season. The whole project will take 2 years, and for the second year, will require us to use runway 28 (as runway 24R will fully close in summer 2020). The new terminal building is supposed to be built pretty much on top of runway 28. See the dilemma.....

Work on the car park and departure ramp is supposed to start end of this year as well. Driving to YUL will be a clusterf**k in the meantime.

Once some of these projects are complete, only then will the construction of the new terminal building commence.
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!

YYJ January and February

January

Domestic: 115,384 +0.7%
Transborder: 18,600 -10.1%
International: 7,213 +9.6%

Total: 141,197 -0.4%

February

Domestic: -3.5%
Transborder: -20.3%
International: 6,980 +7.9%

Total: 129,205 -5.3%

Sluggish start to the year in Victoria. Two main factors: the loss of the UA flight to SFO and weather, particularly in February. Lots of cancellations and some with discretionary travel might have elected to stay home instead.

Total : 1 433 472 +7.1%

Domestic: 475 188 +2.0%

International: 624 553 +13,3%

Transborder: 333 731 +3.8%

Total 2019

Domestic: 965 563 +2,6%

International: 1 325 563 +12.9%

Transborder: 674 275 +4.8%


International trafic keeps boosting the airport's numbers. During the first two months, YUL handled 297,770 more passengers than for the same period in 2016. That's close to +29% growth BUT, 50,7% (151,003) of these additional international passengers were gained over 2018. What's going on at YUL to attract so much international trafic. Basically it's twice the variation over 2017/18.

Good point, thanks for pointing that out, I completely forgot so many routes were launched/resumed compared to last year. Just the NRT service means roughtly 21,000+ more seats over the two months, based on 788 seating, and I'm not sure whether the 789 was used or not for a while.

Good point, thanks for pointing that out, I completely forgot so many routes were launched/resumed compared to last year. Just the NRT service means roughtly 21,000+ more seats over the two months, based on 788 seating, and I'm not sure whether the 789 was used or not for a while.

Indeed, those 21k+ additional seats must have attracted considerable new connecting traffic, attracted a bunch of YUL passengers away from competitors (no impact on YUL traffic thought) and finally induced some new traffic (O & D).

Interesting to see the March-May 7M8 effect on growth numbers. I remember seeing some numbers that YUL would be the one impacted most by AC cuts.

YOW March

YOW's March pax stats are out and they're pretty good. Given the lack of MAX ops at YOW this winter, I have a feeling AC pumped a lot more connections through YOW than the usual 7-8% as capacity was essentially flat vs last year...except for international. Loads must have been north of 90% overall.

Sector / Mar-18 / Mar-19 / % Change
Dom: 313,557 / 317,336 / +1.2%
TB: 75,761 / 79,628 / +5.1%
Int'l: 57,072 / 65,995 / +15.6% -I bet a good chunk of this gain came from rerouting YHZ-LHR pax via YOW
TTL: 446,390 / 462,959 / +3.7%

Sector / YTD 2019 / YTD 2019 / % Change
Dom: 869,717 / 867,350 / -0.3%
TB: 212,910 / 214,426 / +0.7%
Int'l: 165,890 / 189,431 / +14.2%

Not really.

TC grounded the Max on March 13. So until March 31, that's 19 days.

A daily 767 YOW-LHR-YOW for 19 days gives you 8018 seats. That's most of your 2018/2019 March increase right there. If all these pax came from Halifax or YYT, that would mean YOW-LHR was going out close to empty in March 2018. I doubt that.

Sunwing added some sun destinations out of YOW for winter 2018/2019. The increase is probably due to a combination of increased sun flying + YHZ/YYT-LHR cancelation.
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!

That's why I said 'a good chunk'. If YOW-LHR ran at say a 95% load in the last 19 days of the month vs probably more like 83% for a typical March, then probably at least 1,500 YHZ/YYT-LHR pax were rerouted onto YOW-LHR, which would account for about 3% of March's international pax gain.

YWG Q1 Results

While the WAA has not yet published final 2018 numbers on their website, here are the rounded numbers for Q1 2019:

1.1 million total pax = +7.5% growth for Q1. I wonder how much of that was thanks to Flair's now cancelled transborder routes?

March growth was +9.5%

Even in their 2018 annual report they are sticking at 4,5 millions passengers.

Regarding the transborder routes, maybe the numbers were not that high in the end, hence the cancellation.

Perhaps not but either way it was a substantial increase in transborder capacity If the loads were bad, it still would have produced a substantial boost to transborder traffic numbers.

YYZ Q1

https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/g ... 91762.html

The Greater Toronto Airports Authority ("GTAA") today reported its financial and operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019. Passenger activity increased at 2.8 per cent, during the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the same period of 2018...

In the first three months of 2019, a total of 11.7 million passengers travelled through Toronto Pearson, an increase of approximately 315,000 passengers over the same period in 2018. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, passenger activity in the international sector increased by 4.0 per cent growth and the domestic sector increased by 0.3 per cent growth over the same period in 2018.


With no mention of Transborder, evidently it fell slightly in the quarter.

I wonder how Q2 will look like, especially at the MAX-heavy airports?

Also, I can't find the complete breakdown of pax stats on the GTAA's website ever since it was redesigned. Does anyone know where it's gone?

Here, but they are as up-to-date as in January :roll: : https://www.torontopearson.com/en/corpo ... rket-facts

Apparently, they don't really care, along with YWG. YUL is late too, but not as much, yet.

See below. On the GTAA link I added yesterday, check the PDF under "Current Airport Traffic Summary", it's where I've found these numbers.

YOW's April pax stats are out and they're very, very good:

Sector / Apr-18 / Apr-19 / % Change
Dom: 307,232 321,291 4.6% - Impressive with no WS YEG winter flight & maybe YOW's getting more CNX PAX than usual due to the MAX
TB: 61,384 / 68,122 / +11.0% - Remind me again why UA are suspending YOW-ORD and AA is cutting PHL back again to 2x?
Int'l: 28,671 / 32,194 / +12.3% - I'd love to know how many pax AC rerouted onto YOW-LHR from YHZ?
TTL: 397,287 / 421,607 / +6.1%

Sector / YTD 2018 / YTD 2019 / % Change
Dom: 1,176,949 / 1,188,641 / +1.0%
TB: 274,294 / 282,548 / +3.0% - This will mark the end of the good times as AA cut PHL to 2x in early May (offset by DL's 2nd LGA) and we all know about UA and ORD next month.
Int'l: 194,561 / 221,625 / +13.9% - Amazing how YOW will respond when new capacity is actually offered. Speaking of which, seasonal YOW-FRA resumes today.
TTL: 1,645,804 / 1,692,814 / +2.9% - Breaking even for 2019 is looking a little more possible now
