YOW-ORD is now pushed back from late October to 16DEC21 showing 3x CRJ from the get-go...seems a little far-fetched to be starting at 3x.

Even the police can't follow Transport Canada's drone operation regulations.

UA's schedule has only been modified until mid-December. For YYC it shows SFO / ORD and IAH resuming December 16th at 2-3x daily. I assuming they're holding off updating the Christmas break schedule until closer to, to see what demand is like.

Saskatchewan pax numbers: https://skyscraperpage.com/forum/sho...41#post9376241

Quote:
Saskatoon saw 463,531 passengers in 2020, a decrease from 1,482,538 a year prior.

“For us locally, at the worst of the pandemic, we did see a 98 per cent decrease in passenger traffic at around April 2020, and we never really recovered after that since we finished the year about 69 per cent down from what we would have seen compared to 2019,” Dushinski explained.

As for Regina, there were 363,409 total passengers last year compared to 1,168,390 in 2019.

From January- June 2021 in Western Canada, Calgary International Airport YYC handled a total of 1,387,968 passengers and were a little more busier than Vancouver. https://www.yyc.com/Portals/0/MEDIA/...r_paxtotal.pdf

While Vancouver International Airport handled a total of 1,339,069 from January-June https://www.yvr.ca/-/media/yvr/docum...passengers.pdf

Does that make Calgary the second busiest airport in Canada for 2021 so far? Or is Montreal currently ahead of Calgary?

Lack of US, Asian - especially to China - and Australian flights are really hurting YVR's numbers.

As for YYC, their domestic hub strength is evident. Over 90% of their passenger count is domestic. Which means they are more shielded compared to YVR or YUL when international borders close. Hence explaining the easy overtake of both.

Will be interesting to see if YYC can hold this lead and take 2nd place at the end of 2021. I don't think it will. With international flights opening up, YVR should overtake fairly quickly. YUL as well, but might take more time.

2021 will likely finish with the same ranking as 2020 : YYZ in first, YVR second, YYC third and YUL fourth. 2022 should see YUL back in third, if we don’t get a 5th, 6th and 7th wave of this fucking virus that is.

Impressive stuff by YYC nevertheless !

Yes it does, for now.
YUL, with 911,817 passengers January to June, is well below YYC's and YVR's overall numbers, but well above both in terms of international passengers. Like I said above, with international borders opening up, YVR should be able to overtake YYC soon enough. YUL might take some time to catch up to YYC's overall numbers as well, but it should happen eventually, once all is right with the world.......

International passenger numbers January-June 2021:

YUL: 413,625
YVR: 271,025
YYC: 128,384

not sure how this will affect Canada, they do fly to Toronto, but surprising to see them shut down.

It's not that surprising. They were shopping for a buyer a couple years before the pandemic began, and had losses for most of the decade prior to that point. The Italian government taking ownership was meant to be a stop-gap to allow purchase negotiations to continue but Alitalia doesn't have much worth buying.

Lots of passengers but they weren't able to compete with discount airlines HQ'd in other parts of Europe. Lufthansa, Air France, and Easyjet can comfortably take-over Alitalia routes/traffic without needing to buy the airline itself.

Not surprising at all. They’ve been a mess for years.

I think that means YYC is definitely 2nd busiest as here is to June for YYZ that I posted a couple of weeks ago:

Three months / Six months (in millions)

Sector/ 2021 Q2 / 2020 Q2 / # Change / % Change / 2021 YTD / 2020 YTD / # Change / % Change
Domestic / 0.6 / 0.3 / 0.3 / +93.8% / 1.2 / 3.5 / (2.3) / (65.3%)
International / 0.4 / 0.2 / 0.2 / +93.9% / 0.9 / 6.6 / (5.7) / (86.4%)
Total / 1.0 / 0.5 / 0.5 / +93.8% / 2.1 / 10.1 / (12.2) / (79.1%)

That's only about 800k behind YYZ.

Canada puts a ban on flights from Morocco, same way it did for flights from India back in April. Ban starts midnight tonight and runs until Sept 29, for now.

Needless to say, this will affect mostly YUL, as it has several daily flights to CMN everyday on AT and AC.

Is something happening in Morocco that I'm not aware of? We are starting a survey for a mining company there soon, and the equipment was detained by CBSA to review whether it required export permits (it didn't as it turns out). Now they're stopping flights from Morocco?

Due to COVID.
