Phoenix area = major golfing destination. AC (Rouge) flies seasonal 763 daily (or double daily 32X) to PHX from YYZ.

In addition to providing over 8000 full-time jobs in Saskatoon, John G. Diefenbaker International Airport’s
contribution to the GDP of the Saskatoon area was over $1 billion in 2016.
If passenger counts doubling time at Saskatoon's SKYxe is about twenty years then 6.2 million passengers in 2060?
Just for fun, I mirror imaged using photoshop the north terminal expansion to the south side.

Thats how they justify a service reduction. If people cant make connections to Gander then they’ll find another way thus driving pax numbers down. Via Rail did the same thing in the 80s and 90s. Especially in Moncton where trains from all over the maritimes would arrive relatively at the same time so people could connect. They changed all the times on the trains which made it impossible to make a connection. Pax numbers dropped and the service went away. And that was government run!!

Airline announces start of operations out of YHM. A short while later, same airline announces complete pull out. YHM at its best, ladies and gentlemen! Let's see how long Flair will last at YYZ, and how long swoop and Norwegian will last at YHM.

Swoop will become Canada’s first ultra low cost airline to fly to the United States when it launches service this fall to five popular tourist destinations in Florida, Nevada and Arizona.

The subsidiary of WestJet Airlines Ltd. will start Oct. 11 with flights to Las Vegas from Abbotsford, B.C., and Edmonton, Alta., about four months after Swoop began to fly.

Service will be added over the following couple of weeks between Hamilton, Ont., and Las Vegas as well as to the Florida cities of Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay. Flights between Edmonton and Phoenix will start Oct. 27.

Most destinations will be serviced a few times per week but daily service will be flown between Edmonton and Las Vegas.

The transborder service will be launched to these U.S. gateways as Swoop receives delivery of its fifth and sixth airplane, said Swoop president Steven Greenway.

“They really blend well to the model that we provide in terms of low cost, high volume type of leisure profile that we definitely are targeting,” he said in an interview.

Everyday one-way fares start as low as $149 including taxes and fees through April, however it will offer 4,100 seats at low promotional fares of $99 and $119 for travel booked online until Feb. 13.


Good to already see expansion, but it would be so much better (for me) to see ULCC service to Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Saskatoon, St. John's, and other domestic cities! It's already so much cheaper to leave Canada than to fly within it...I've been hoping ULCCs will improve that situation. Any hope on the horizon do you think?

It's my understanding that these vacation routes are the most suited to ULCCs. Swoop is starting with these but plans to roll out other routes later on. Does Montreal have a cheaper secondary airport besides Trudeau?

There's St. Hubert Airport on the south shore. It's currently used by Pascan Aviation. The only problem is that it is missing a terminal. But it would be the logical choice.

The Quebec government granted $800K in its most recent budget for a project office for the terminal. https://www.journaldemontreal.com/20...-a-st-hubert-1

Saudia is ceasing YYZ operations as of August 13th because of the diplomatic row with Canada.

It amuses me to see Airlines like Flair and Swoop come and do exactly what has always been done and make a big deal about it. There is no imagination in the Canadian airline industry. Everyones route map looks the same. For once it would be nice for someone to step forward with a plan to do something different. And i dont mean flying to Abbotsford instead of YVR or YHM instead of YYZ.

Who even knew Saudia flew to Canada.

Given the lickspittle way the UAE followed their Saudi masters by condemning Canada, revoking Emirates right to fly to Canada would be in order. We’ve always been a thorn in their side, the one country that wouldn’t throw their domestic carriers under the bus for the “privilege” of EK service.

One would like to think that Canada would demonstrate more sangfroid than that. Leave hysteria to the Arabs and the Latins!

Indeed. A good way to look crazy is to irrationally respond to every provocation.

The Saudis aren't doing much to dispel the perception that they're a backwards country ruled by a despot. That they become so unhinged/extreme when anyone dares question them cements how desperate it must be living in that hell hole.

Quick question about the island airport YTZ. What do you think is the max annual passenger potential given the current rules pertaining to aircraft type and the current physical size (without the lake to add runways)? It's at about 2.8 million as of 2017, so could it theoretically say, double that?

Is the airport extremely congested now? Near or at capacity?
