Yes. 100 million if we take into account the top 5 airports. Not bad at all.

Vancouver International Airport Serves Record 20 Millionth Passenger

December 22, 2015

Vancouver International Airport (YVR) will today serve its 20 millionth annual passenger, a new record for one of Canada’s fastest growing airports and a critical landmark in its trajectory towards 25 million passengers by 2020.

“Our goal remains clear: to connect British Columbians proudly to the world while establishing YVR as a world-class sustainable gateway between Asia and the Americas,” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “We are committed to creating new jobs, increasing access to global destinations and opening new markets for B.C. goods through innovative strategies that continue to drive growth.”

One such strategy is ConnectYVR, a new rates and charges program for airlines that comes into effect January 1, 2016. Made possible by YVR’s commitment to develop innovative sources of non-aviation related revenue, ConnectYVR offers a rate structure for landing and terminal fees that financially incentivizes airlines for growth and efficiency.

“By incenting airlines to grow and improving our terminal facilities and processes to move passengers and planes quickly, we can continue to attract new airlines to YVR and position ourselves as a major international hub in the increasingly competitive aviation industry,” added Richmond.

Looking to the future, YVR is working hard to achieve an ambitious goal of serving 25 million passengers by 2020. To get there requires a combination of new routes, increased frequencies, larger planes and new airlines.

In 2015, YVR welcomed two new airlines: Air France launched thrice-weekly seasonal service to Paris in March and in December Aeromexico began daily service to Mexico City. Every new daily international flight to YVR creates between 150 and 200 jobs at the airport and in B.C.’s hotels, tourism attractions and businesses. Ongoing operations at YVR support more than 23,600 direct jobs at the airport alone and generate $5.3 billion in total gross domestic product and $11.7 billion in total economic output into the Canadian economy.

Reaching the goal of 25 million passengers by 2020 would add 5,000-7,000 more direct jobs at YVR, generate $2.7 billion in gross domestic product and more than $800 million in tax revenues to local, provincial and federal governments.

Also, that YVR-BNE route has already gone daily. Didn't take long at all.

The flight hasn't even started yet and it's already been bumped up in starting date and expanded from 3x weekly to daily. Talk about an overdue bilateral.

I am finding interesting about all of this is YVR is growing across airline and alliance boundaries. The Air Canada increases (combined with their joint venture partners) is really good. However it is not just Star Alliance, there are Skyteam and Oneworld members adding flights to new destinations, including secondary cities in China.

From an airline perspective, I'm curious about why St. John's isn't used more as an intermediate stop to and from Europe. Somewhat like how Vancouver is the hub that so many flights from Eastern Canada (and sometimes the US) stop at before continuing to Asia. Obviously the population is a lot lower, but is Europe's comparative proximity also part of the rationale - that there's no need to stop midway? Simply from a geographic perspective it would seem logical. Sure this is a dumb question, but I'd be interested in the reason!

MalcolmTucker Dec 23, 2015 10:59 PM

It isn't far enough north, and it is less of an anchor for flights through origin and destination traffic. If it was 3 million people, it would be different I think.

There isn't a need any longer to stop for fuel before crossing the Atlantic, plus the route north over(-ish) the pole is more direct for the major population centres of Canada than travelling east for hundreds of kilometres, if not more, and operationally there isn't a compelling reason for stopping in a small market like St. John's before heading on to Europe.

YYT should consider itself lucky to have scheduled service to LHR, DUB and soon LGW. Plenty of cities in the States with a population 5 to 10 times larger with no service to Europe.

Adding to the list of Heavies at CYYZ, we had a Hi Fly A343 from Lisbon come in today. First time I've seen it, haven't looked to see if it's a regular schedule or refugee flight.

It was a refugee flight.

5K 671 Amman-Lisbon-Toronto

They most likely stopped in LIS for a crew change.

On a different note, Air China started HAV-YUL-PEK yesterday...and interestingly enough the flight from YUL back to PEK cruised at 32,000 the entire way to China. Cargo hold must have been full of rum and cigars, and also maybe one or two of those antique American cars... ;)

Aeroflot? Moscow? Asian Airline? :shrug:

eemy Dec 29, 2015 11:28 PM

Even if some of Aeroflot's home territory is in Asia, it is a stretch to call it an Asian airline and it's service to Moscow from Havana certainly doesn't count as an Asian flight.

As an aside, I looked at the Havana Airport's wikipedia page and noticed that it had direct service to Angola (one of very few airports in North America to have direct service to that part of Africa). It seems kind of peculiar, but apparently Cuba has quite a long history in Angola.
