This airport should be the hub of the Island. 500-600k catchment, if marketed right. That's easily 2.5 million or even 3 million annually, but again, if marketed right.
Yet Geoff says this ..... after getting 3 Million from the feds.....
“Victoria International Airport is a vital economic generator for the Greater Victoria Region. The pandemic has been financially devastating to the airport industry and aviation sector as a whole. This funding announcement is welcome news which will assist YYJ to reinstate lost air service, attract new air service, build passenger demand, and continue to operate a safe and efficient airport with world class safety and health standards. Air connectivity is a key to economic prosperity and we look forward to help building back the visitor economy.”
– Geoff Dickson, President and CEO, Victoria Airport Authority
