Passenger airline traffic continues to rise at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport.

The Winnipeg Airports Authority released its fourth quarter results on Wednesday, saying traffic increased by 1.64% over the same period in 2011.

“Our community’s new airport received a great deal of international attention this past quarter as a result of being named one of the World’s Most Stylish Airports,” said Barry Rempel, president and CEO of the WAA.

Revenue was also up in that same period, from $19.9 million to $21.2 million. Earnings before interest were $9.2 million, compared to $8.0 million in 2011.

The airport also welcomed a new Harvey’s and 7-Eleven to its campus last year.
