John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport was built in Oct-1940 and over the years has transformed into a regional transportation hub. In the early 1980s, local politician John Munro secured a CAD55-million federal investment to expand and develop the airport’s facilities resulting in the airport being renamed in his honour in 1998. Vancouver Airport Services took over the management and operation of the airport in 1996. The airport now generates a profit at no cost to taxpayers, has increased the airport-related workforce and significantly improved passenger and cargo business. Today, the airport is Canada’s largest intermodal courier/cargo gateway and a growing passenger airport.

Two major elements driving Air Canada’s 2Q2012 negative financial results – labour strife and pressure created by the sudden shutdown of its major maintenance provider Aveos – are the areas where the carrier sees prime opportunities in the future as new labour agreements allow for the creation of a new low cost carrier and negotiations with new suppliers ensure a substantial improvement in the costs of airframe maintenance.
Air Canada management during the last year has often cited the transformation that needs to occur at the carrier in order for the airline to compete in the new competitive environment ushered in by LCCs and spiking fuel prices. But in the short term the company still must deal with disgruntled employees and increasing competitive pressure that will not pause as Air Canada works to complete its transformation.
During 2Q2012 Air Canada widened its losses year-over-year by CAD50 million (USD50.2 million) to CAD96 million (USD96.4 million), while net losses for 1H2012 expanded by CAD241 million (USD242 million) to CAD306 million (USD307 million).
Two of Canada’s leading airport operators, Toronto’s GTAA and Aeroports de Montreal, released their financial report for the year ending 31-Dec-2010. Both are not-for-profit corporatised organisations, typical of the halfway house privatisation that applies to most of the major Canadian gateway airports, and one that has attracted some attention in the US. Both report EBITDA gains but AdM still trails Toronto in passenger volume by quite a margin.
Once it was short haul services that were in demand from UK’s regional airports, now it seems that the desire to avoid travelling via a hub has spread to the mid to long haul arena, as difficult as it may be to justify some of the proposed services. The latest airports to investigate the level of demand for long haul flights are Newcastle and Cardiff.
Air passengers from Canada’s Ontario province are increasingly heading for Buffalo Niagara International Airport across the border in New York State, USA. Price is the key, in addition to convenience. Buffalo has been developing its low cost offer at the expense of Canadian airports like Toronto, and Hamilton, which is in itself a low cost facility. But experience elsewhere in the world indicates that some low cost airports have run out of steam.
