Well aside from the 30 pax from the Icelandic delegation thats 93 passengers, not stellar but also can't be judged as the inaugural inbound flight. I'd suspect most of those passengers originated from other points in Europe on route to YEG and the area.
The outbound however was stellar for loads for the first outbound flight. Good to see YEG and area showing such a strong response to the new flight and its connections.
I also noticed in reading one of the online news reports they interviewed a number of people flying out on the flight from Saskatchewan and Calgary… So this flight will clearly see more than just YEG use.
