YSJ emerges as the preferred choice among area passengers

Airport successfully recapturing local travellers, enabling growth and expanded services

Saint John – The vast majority of Saint John and area travellers describe YSJ as a convenient, competitive and reliable airport that meets their travel needs, according to a stakeholder survey conducted earlier this year.

More than 375 responses were received over a six-week period in February and March, 2019.

“We’ve been working hard to expand and enhance passenger services and flight options over the last two years and it’s paying off,” said Airport President and CEO Derrick Stanford. “Local travellers are choosing YSJ over other nearby options more than ever, which has meant a second consecutive record-breaking year with more than 280,000 passengers in 2018.”

The Saint John Airport is held in high-regard by the community, and is seen as an important employer in the region. Its efforts to invest and give back are widely recognized as community-minded, and overall it is considered an ethical and socially responsible organization that acts in the best interest of the stakeholders it serves.  

“We’re proud of the community we serve,” Stanford added. “And we know that the more we give back, the more we attract local support.”
