Fredericton International Airport Authority AGM focuses on growth
The Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) celebrated a banner year at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) today at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, where a packed room of stakeholders and supporters, including leaders from government, business and the community, applauded its record-breaking performance in 2018.
The Fredericton International Airport (YFC) is on a steady, sustained upward trajectory. For the ninth straight year, its passenger numbers increased. In 2018 alone, this figure rose almost 7 per cent. Also in 2018, for the first time in its history, the airport passed the 400,000-passenger mark, welcoming 424,324 travellers.
This impressive growth is fueled by, and contributes to, opportunities and optimism in the Capital Region.
“YFC is so successful because it’s an important player in a dynamic, progressive, and growing community,” says FIAA President and CEO, Johanne Gallant. “Thank you to all our partners and stakeholders. You are fueling our growth.”
This powerful growth is behind one of the biggest investments in the airport’s history. In 2018, FIAA secured funding support from the Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick for a major terminal expansion.
