Edmonton Airport reports 7.8m in passenger traffic in 2018

Edmonton Airport has reported 7.8 million terminal passengers in 2018, compared to 7.38 million terminal passengers in 2017, the company said.

Year-on-Year comparisons for passenger numbers from January to November 2018 show that Edmonton was 6.3% up on the equivalent period in 2017.

Domestic services account for the majority of passengers at Edmonton, and internal traffic has been growing at a faster rate than international journeys in recent times.

Edmonton saw 17 airlines provide some level of scheduled air service during 2018. WestJet and Air Canada are the largest carriers at the airport, accounting for 75% of all seats to and from the capital of Alberta last year. Air Canada increased its capacity by 200,000 seats in 2018, but much of the airport´s recent capacity growth has come from two ULCCs: Flair Airlines and Swoop.
