    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.

              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.
              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.
                  Let's make Edmonton better.
