    When was the last time we got a new domestic route?

    I can't remember.

    Comox?

    Cranbrook?

    You have a point.

    The largest city we don't have a nonstop to is Quebec City I think.

    I would not be surprised to see that the recent weakness is actually due to a slowdown in demand rather than a lack of capacity.

    Precisely indeed. You're complaining that WestJet doesn't serve Fort St. John, Prince George or Nanaimo, yet the last two domestic routes launched from Edmonton failed. Integra Air to Cranbrook and WestJet to Kamloops (though they're giving it another try next year).

    WestJet has the numbers and if there was a case for those markets they'd launch them. In June they will start third daily Abbotsford on Encore, they could have just as easily used that aircraft on any of those destinations you listed, but they saw the numbers and decided they'd make more money flying that plane to Abbotsford.

    What if any other destinations do you think WJ may add?

    Long term for Edmonton to compete with Calgary, we need an airline hub. I think that's pretty safe to say.

    If Westjet would be that airline, that would be great, but if they won't, then we still need an airline hub. We're out of the coma now, we don't need to stand around with our hands in our pockets.

    I'd like to see routes like London/Waterloo-Winnipeg-Edmonton-Nanaimo, giving smaller centers the opportunity to access major cities.

    As per the thoughts of ThegreatestX , Air Canada has just announced a daily flight from Nanaimo to Calgary. That will join the Two westjet encore flights daily to Calgary . There is real strong growth in this market in the last year and There is a very strong desire from Nanaimo and Cowichan residents for direct service to Edmonton, but it is slower in coming as the two airlines are focused on the Calgary market.

    believe it or not, there are tons of trade workers in those regions and they have to get to Edm or Calg for the FBO flights. Once again Edm. is primarily their choice but are refused services due to the two airlines' Calgary hubs. They hate Calgary as once they board the FBO flights, it has to land in Edmonton anyways to pick up more passengers then to the camp. What these cruel airlines don't understand or care is that they put hardship to many workers as their travels to camp is that much longer, and all in the meantime, making these two airlines a handsome profit.

    Hamilton is also another large city that is not served well.

    There are flights to Fort St.John through Integra.

    Nope, that's CMA. Integra only flies to Lethbridge.

    Don't over state the situation the airlines are not being cruel they are doing what they think is best for them. Unfortunately that does not align with YEG's ambition of being a regional hub. If YEG is to realize it's ambitions of creating an aerotropolis it cannot rely on the good will of the airlines who introduce and withdraw service on a whim. Kamloops today maybe not tomorrow when they decide to run the traffic through their hub.
    I thought that with all the FBO charters flying out of YEG they would improve domestic service to Edmonton but they have hardly budged instead WS have enhanced their domestic service to YVR and YYC with the introduction of Encore and very little to YEG.
    Consider the the passenger growth from 2004 to 2013 before the introduction of Icelanair. Overall there has been a 75% increase from 4mil to 7 mil. Transborder has more than doubled in this time international has tripled and domestic has only grown 66%.

    Cool

    ^^
    Correct as i have flown with them to there.

    Satisfying customers that fork out an arm and a leg, price wise, to get home and back regularly should be their priority. As well, lets not even get into the prices that all these workers pay for their flights.

    Those are terrific numbers especially m ore than 7 million terminal and more than 8 million overall.
    With KLM entering our market in May, international should have a stellar year.
