On the VAA website, under non-stop destinations, the VAA recently updated and the addition of the new routes offered by a few of the airlines, but also removed all but PVR sun spot charter destinations.

 

I guess Mexico isn't a option is winter like it use to be in the past.

 

Maybe next year Viva AeroBus ....

Swoop announced PVR last week, so there will still be Mexico service.

Transat won't be back, they are focusing on Eastern Canada.

Viva Aerobus operated for Sunwing. Nothing bookable from YYJ at this point on Sunwing's website for the winter season.

I'm aware of Swoops new service, it is listed. It's all the other destinations that use to be listed sadly have gone. Los cabos, Mazatlán, Cancun, etc.

Recovery of this sector will take alot of time. 

Who knows, maybe HNL or the Caribbean might be offered next year.

On a airport/airplane spotter fb page, the question was asked about the closed taxi way at YYJ

A rep for the VAA stated the closed taxi way that was built and completed in Oct of 2019, maybe open by 

the end of Aug 2021.

Again, VAA and NAV CAN dispute on top of money towards the construction of CCTV system.

The new control tower construction has been pushed back to approx 2024/25 and relocated to the north side of the field.

Interesting. Their operations are constrained at no jets allowed YTZ because Q400 production has been paused indefinitely. Maybe a partnership with American/JetBlue is cooking? Would have loved a YVR-YTZ. One can dream.

The CEO said in a public meeting on line, and I think in one media news story as well, it would be re located to the north side of air field, close to Mills road and where the small private hangers.

Have we got any visuals for this new control tower?
