In this article on Montreal’s rapid international growth (based on a James Cherry’s Speech) there are some details on the expansion plans for the international concours; 6 new gates and 2 remote stands.. also discusses posible Chinese links and states so far Qatar’s flights to Doha have been fully booked. He mentions Turkish Airways and Emirates are showing interested in flying here.. overall an interesting interview.. lots of stats.. who knew Rome was such a draw from YUL.. where’s ZRH? AMS?
Mr Cherry pointed out that the rapid international growth has occurred despite the Montreal market being “fairly mature”. The population in the Montreal area, which is about 10 million, is not growing and the propensity to travel is already high.
Also, since when does Porter have 16,000 weekly non-domestic seats out of YUL? Porter flies to Halifax and Toronto Island.
I don’t even think that Air France does 16 000 seats with 3 daily flights.
Based on the seats/week chart there are roughly 1.5 million seats available in July’11. When the July actual passenger figures are in we should be able to figure out the load factor.November 19, 2015 at 18 h 09 min #3542SebastienKeymaster
Not terrible, now we just need more airlines to serve Montreal. Which means no more PQ and Block who scare away airlines and investors from our city because of the uncertainty they bring!
