Saint John Airport Posts All-Time Passenger Record

The Saint John Airport is reporting that passenger traffic for 2014 was up 5.5% over 2013, setting a new all-time record.

According to Dave Allen, Airport President & CEO, “We’ve been working very closely with our primary airline partner Air Canada to improve the schedule and seat capacity from Saint John, as well as new equalized pricing between the three New Brunswick airports. When all of those factors are in place, there is no reason for local travellers to fly from anywhere other than Saint John.”
This, coupled with the tremendous season experienced by Sunwing Vacations, resulted in a great year for the Airport. Sunwing will soon to be starting their ninth season from Saint John, with direct weekly flights and vacation packages to Mexico, Dominican Republic, and two weekly flights direct to Cuba starting mid- February.   

The Airport has also placed a focused effort into improving the travel experience for passengers. In addition to facility enhancements such as a local art program, a newly renovated restaurant, a new long-term parking lot area, and an expanded aircraft parking area, the Airport, in partnership with Revolution Strategy, is now embarking on new technology horizons - releasing a new travel App to assist passengers with customizing their packing lists, checking current flight times, and obtaining local airport information. 

“The combination of these efforts will no doubt improve our customer experience and ultimately our passenger numbers. We look forward to using these traffic results as a springboard for enhancing travel options from our airport, and we are optimistic that airlines will look positively on these numbers when they scrutinize their route decisions”, adds Mr. Allen.  

Saint John Airport Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation serving air travel needs of 300,000 residents of southwestern New Brunswick spanning from Sussex to the Fundy Isles, and is a key element in the economic and social development of this region. The airport’s economic impact estimated at $66 million, with over 570 jobs created directly and indirectly.  All revenue of the Saint John Airport is reinvested in operations and facilities on-site.
