January Passenger Stats for YYC

YYC continues to rebound from the slow down of a year ago with January 2010 seeing a 1.7% increase in passenger numbers. The total number of passengers coming through the Calgary Airport in January was 954,122 versus 938,304 in 2009. The number is still shy of the 979,336 seen in the record year of 2008.

Domestically, the numbers dropped by 2.5% but strong gains in the Transborder (+12.9%) and International (7.8%) markets helped YYC achieve that small gain over 2009.
