  1. I hope the great international growth numbers are proof that YYC and area are supporting the services from BA, KLM, LH, and AC's new flight to Tokyo.

  2. I would hope for that as well, unfortunately YYC does not break it down further (well at least to us publicly). I would have to say however that a good chunk of this growth is probably from travel to Mexico and the Caribbean.
