Airport's Q2 passenger traffic, revenues up

  • Print

The addition of some new Westjet Encore flights helped to boost passenger traffic at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport by six per cent in the second quarter of this year.

"We were pleased to once again see increases in passenger traffic this quarter due to expanded service and frequency from our airline partners," said Winnipeg Airports Authority (WAA) president and CEO Barry Rempel.

The WAA said Westjet Encore launched a new twice-daily service between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay during the quarter. As well, Sunwing announced it will be adding Orlando and Florida to its list of direct destinations from Winnipeg, beginning this winter.

The increase in passenger traffic volumes helped to boost overall revenues for the quarter to $24.2 million from $23.1 million in the same period last year.

But despite the revenue increase, earnings before interest, depreciation, and taxes still declined by 6.6 per cent to $11.4 million from $12.2 million, the authority added.
