    Transborder continues its free-fall.

    Should finally flatten-out on the aniversary of the last capacity cut.

    Continued flight reductions showing now into summer from UA going stateside. Trans-border will continue looking grim for a while.

    Domestic is not bad considering the economy. Also, the city's population continues to boom. If we exit recession, I would anticipate a significant bump in traffic.

    I guess that depends on how much of the domestic number is Edm-Cgy. Some of the loss of our transborder capacity can't help but mean that more Edmontonians are having to connect through Calgary if their destination is the US.

    ^ and through Toronto and Vancouver.

    Thing with cowtown is that it also gets drivers (who are counted as lost passengers entirely at YEG.)



    Amazing to see Overseas begin to rival Transborder, BTW.

    Yikes, not very pretty. Dropping international numbers presumably reflect less discretionary spending on the part of consumers. Nice warm winter combined with concern over the economy equates to fewer spring break trips.

    Sadly very poor.

    The good news is that despite these numbers YEG has not lost many destinations. A few here and there. But in general you can still get a lot of places non-stop.

    The international numbers may pick up again when the summer tourist season kicks off plus the start of the Westjet to London route.

    I'm assuming the losses in international are more on the charter side, to Mexico and the Caribbean, and more a symptom of the oilpatch than the City. We did lose AC to London, of course, as well. I don't remember when their schedule was. Trying to forget them entirely.

    May numbers should be better (for all the wrong reasons) with all the Fort McMurray evacuation flights.

    My only real concerns for air service are in being funnelled through YYC to prop up their failing US routes, and through YYZ to boost their burgeoning US routes.

    Would like New York and Mexico City back, and a route to Asia, but I don't think this is our year.

    I think, as a layman on the subject, that the oil patch woes (which made airlines reduce routes) was further magnified by a weak loonie and the recent negative news cycle on immigration problems and terrorist attacks in Europe making discretionary international travelling less appealing for now. All these are transitory factors and slowly but surely we should see a pick up.

    Unfortunately these numbers reveal YEG's vulnerability in the current market. Other major Canadian airports are recording small or in some cases significant gains. Even YYC is holding up better thus far in 2016 despite Calgary being harder hit in other ways. Presumably this reflects YYC's status as a hub for both WS and AC.

    other cities (yyc included) benefit from a low CAD - more inbound tourists. The Edmonton market does not draw international tourism so our numbers suffer.

    Yes, that's part of the vulnerability I was talking about. But it's more complicated than that: YYC has also shown similar weakness with total international traffic (US plus elsewhere) down 1.7% in Q1. This is more than compensated for by domestic at YYC being up 4.5% in Q1 so something's keeping them above water.

    On the flip side all scheduled flights to YMM are cancelled until further notice so it might all cancel out.

    So I guess my fear is transborder is not going to rebound if the US airlines decide to abandon YEG and Westjet moves more towards Air Canada's model and hubs us out through Calgary.

    Good time to do it and makes sense for all involved.

    Reduce transborder service and shift YEG to more domestic by both UA and a Westjet.

    Air Canada did that a long time ago

    Not fear Mongering but the reality on the ground and how precarious YEG Transborder is.

    For example:

    We all know Air Canada abandoned YEG Transborder a long time ago.

    With respect to the US airlines they have their own agenda and are looking after themselves. We have some flights from them but those are tenuous at best and can be cancelled, reduced or rerouted through Canadian hubs even with perceived good loads.

    WestJet flies Recreational and Sun destinations through YEG only - we do not have a NYC, Chicago or Houston WestJet flight - all are routed through Calgary or Toronto. We have not seen a major WestJet transborder non recreational route announcement that I am aware of.

    So that is the state of YEG transborder as I see it - if the experts out there have a more positive outlook based on insider knowledge then I will embrace it.

    I am sure EIA is putting pressure on WS for flights .... and WS would be foolish not to provide service to points south if the numbers are there. We don't want to be in a frenemy situation ... or someone local may buy New Leaf & Flair

  38. #38

    Very true that WS has been quite shy wen it comes to opening up new routes to the US from YEG - other than the usual sun destinations. But remember that WS chose not to go for ERJ aircraft and thus they have a very limited ability to serve destinations that may not support a full 737 (except for the 737-600 which I believe will be phase out). So they end up sticking to hubs for new routes.

    With the decreased capacity from YEG to the US, I would think WS could try ORD and DFW with AA codeshare. And even JFK with either a DL or AA codeshare. but it's a bit too late now with the summer schedule.

    I think next year will be interesting if WS decides to try something out assuming United drops service (as it is rumoured) or does not bring back SFO and ORD.

    ^ So the first excuse was the metal, the second was the time of year and the third was waiting for US Airlines to drop out.

    WestJet has had many years to prove that they are serious about providing service other than sun destinations to some of the US destinations YEG needs.

    I think there is a lot more behind the scene politics involved in this than we think. I'm convinced The Calgary business community put pressure on both WS and that Crappy Airline to not serve Edmonton for economic advantage.

    It won't be easy, but our business community need to strengthen with each other and start some form of dialogue. When we interact, ideas and resolutions come about. We are down and out already, but if we are not doing anything , we continue to be stagnant.

    I agree and supporting the EIAA is a good start as is following up with Brad Ferguson and EEDC.

    However, I believe that if we could get Mayor Iveson to forget about bicycles for a while and focus on air transport it would be helpful even if, for example, he stated that he only flies non-stop or when he connects it is not in YYC or YYZ (meaning he flies American carries and either or both of FI/KLM).

    The thing is, the mayor is only one person. He can't wipe everyone's butt! What I'm talking about is corporate leaders, and wealthy businessmen to come together. We also need a third airline, so this is where we need these leaders to approach Porter or whoever together. It is more affective when a city and it's leaders approach rather than the mayor or team EIA alone. Business leaders are the ones that airlines are interested in. When everyone sits back and expect others to come to their rescue, keep on sitting because no one will. Get a wheelchair too because they'll get old before the service comes.

    ^I think its a pretty tough sell right now, maybe when the economy was booming, but if anything, Alberta is probably oversupplied now. It's unrealistic to expect airlines and airports to grow into a location where GDP is declining, except to the extent a slightly cheaper ski destination for tourists.

    It will and has to be a continuous and long term strategy. I'm not a MC Drive through mentality. As per the market, it is subjective. There are airline alliances, so we need to work within that scope. When one gives me a reason that it can't work because of this or that, I think that is pretty sad. As I mentioned this long ago. I much rather be a loser attempting than a loser not attempting. If you attempt, there are possibilities; if you don't, there is just NOTHING. You choose.

    I wish they'd separate "International - scheduled" from "International - charter", as I'm positive it's the latter in the dregs, but for sure this is what siege looks like.

    Also you can bet our coincidental buoyancy in domestic and freefall in transborder are anything but coincidence. We're being re-routed to boost our own competitors East West and South.

    There is no shock here due to our economic situation. Our plateu is still around that 7 million, but if that declines drastically then there is concern. However, i think we are still doing good.

    So is that Newleaf effect there staving off those last couple percentage points? They're only a few flights per week, I thought.

    Not worried about International, as both KL and KF seem solid, the loss is likely only in charter.

    FBO is actually not as bad as I would have guessed, but not coming back unless Saudi wants it to.

    Transborder is the smoking crater of comet Star Alliance. That's where we have real concern.

    Looks like domestic is not fully absorbing the lost transborder capacity.

    Not ideal but the silver lining is that EIA retains most signature destinations it gained during the boom, including European destinations.

    Numbers should stabilize more for Nov and Dec as sun flights have now all restarted for the most part with a few more slated to start in December.

    Could be because it doesn't include people driving to Calgary for Transborder. I would guess that number has jumped significantly.

    Edmonton International Airport passenger count drops for a second year

    EIA, which saw the number of passengers go down by 2.4 per cent in 2015 following a record year in 2014, said cargo volumes rose for the seventh year in a row, led by flights to such international destinations as Shanghai and Amsterdam.
    Here’s a snapshot of EIA in 2016, by the numbers:
    7,523,864: Total number of passengers.
    5,636,112: Domestic passengers.
    2: Percentage increase in domestic travel.
    916,674: Passengers to and from the United States.
    -25.4: Percentage drop in American travel.
    474,132: International passengers.
    -9.8: Percentage drop in international travel.
    496,946: General charter and business aviation passengers.
    -29: Percentage drop in charter and business aviation travel.
    8.2 million: Record number of total passengers set in 2014.

    I believe Edmontonians flying to the US or internationally via Calgary would be counted as domestic flights for us. If there was previously a flight to the US from Edmonton that didn't stop in Calgary that does exist not now, then this would be a gain for them and a loss for us. I don't think a lot of people are driving to Calgary airport from here, but there could be some in central Alberta who switch between cities depending on flight schedules and convenience.

    I think there was also a lot of US traffic from Fort McMurray and elsewhere in northern Alberta through Edmonton when the economy was better. I can see the combination of a low dollar and a weak Alberta economy hammering US winter get aways.

    Are the airlines responding to a decreased demand, or have the numbers decreased because airlines reduced service. United dropping Chicago and San Francisco service, and reducing Denver service is a huge disappointment and, obviously, if there are 25% fewer seats into the US, there's going to be 25% fewer passengers. American cut DFW and LAX and made PHX seasonal too. Yet, whenever I'm on a flight into the US, it seems full...

    ^ that's the huge portion. There is clearly no way that actual travel to the U.S. declined 25% or whatever. It's because United axed Newark, San Francisco, and Chicago, and AA cut Dallas, while at exactly the same moment Air Canada increased service to Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, and very likely a lot more people just elected to drive through Calgary.

    People are still going to go where they're going to go. Actual demand is lower, but not that much lower.
