  • YEG Passenger Numbers for 2008 (aka aggravate grish sticky)

    I know this topic started appearing in other threads, but I thought we should dedicate a thread to it, and watch the numbers as the year progresses. I hope those who posted in the other thread will post their estimates here again.

    2007 saw about 6.1 million passengers through YEG, and my guess is for about a 12% increase overall, so: 6,800,000.
    Almost always open to debate...

    7.15 M based on those future routes that have yet to be announced.

        Though I'd like to see almost 7M pax by the end of the year, I just don't think it'll happen. For the numbers to increase again by 900,000+ pax, there would need to be a BIG increase in frequencies and some additional routes. Thus far, this is definitely not the case. I think I'm being optimistic (and a realist) when I say we'll be lucky to make it to 6.65M. I'll happily retract that statement if we easily eclipse that.

            10% growth would put us at 6.7+ million - I think that's ambitious enough given the scarcity of gate positions at the favoured times.

              I too am going to exploit that old "Price Is Right" bid strategy and say 7,000,002.

                I'll go for 6,450,000....there are not that many new flights and it would be nice to see controlled growth until the hammer-head comes on line or I'll never get to park near the terminal again!

                        6 521 498.73

                        Or $ 1.00.

                        Depends on how I feel.
                        My hope is that you can finally get rid of the anger in your heart, and fill it with peace, compassion, understanding, and a desire to uplift rather than suppress.

                          looking back to 07, i think the major 1 000 000 jump was caused by new west jet routes, YEG-LHR on AC, and air transats frankfurt and london gatwick's increased route #'s... [just an opinion]

                          i think that the south american market will start to open since Mexicana starts routes in June ...

                          i think if more routes are introduced, there will be another jump.

                          i'd say 7.2 million this year.

                            As I said in a previous post I will go with Reg Milley and predict an 8% growth which calculates to 6,550,326.6. More or less.

                              it would be nice to have no single month with less than 500,000 and at least 3 months with 600,000+. starting with January 08.
