Busiest Month Ever Recorded at Thunder Bay Airport


Thunder Bay International AirportTHUNDER BAY – If you were out at the Thunder Bay International Airport in August, you might have noticed it was a little busy. It was. The Thunder Bay International Airport hosted more passengers in August than any other month in its history.

The airport serviced 67,092 passengers in August, up 1.7% from the previous year.

Scott McFadden, President & CEO of the Thunder Bay International Airports Authority (TBIAA) attributes the continued growth to the growth in capacity offered by a number of carriers. The summer of 2011 has seen both Bearskin Airlines and Wasaya Airways introduced larger aircraft on some of their core routes. Air Canada and Porter Airlines also added significant capacity between Thunder Bay and Toronto.

“Added capacity and increased competition has yielded better options and prices for travellers,” said McFadden adding that Airport will likely surpass 700,000 passenger mark for the first time in 2011.
