Passenger traffic was down in the first quarter of 2013 at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport, but flights remained fuller.
The Winnipeg Airports Authority says traffic decreased 2.6% compared to last year, while the total seats offered by carriers was reduced by 7%.
“Increasingly fuller flights is very good news for our carrier partners while presenting challenges for infrastructure, market access for the travelling public and airport revenues,” said Barry Rempel, president and CEO of the WAA.
Revenue was $22.6 million for the first quarter, compared to $23.5 million for the same period in 2012.
