Victoria International Airport Records Busiest Month in History

Sep 16, 2013

August passenger traffic at Victoria International Airport (YYJ) increased 3.7% over the previous year and established a record volume for the month of August. Not only did it establish a record for August, it represented the most passengers moved through the airport in its history.

“All markets were strong,” said Geoff Dickson, President and CEO of the Victoria Airport Authority. “In particular the U.S. markets showed growth at 10%. Strong load factors on domestic routes aided growth, as did the new WestJet Encore Vancouver service. Total passengers in August were 159,545. It has been a good year for tourism in the region as well as a continued improvement in the economy,” said Dickson “And our numbers reflect that.”
