Along with increasing traffic through Prince Rupert’s port, there has also been a slight increase in traffic through the Prince Rupert Airport during the first six months of 2011.

So far this year there have been 28,746 passengers making their way through YPR, compared to 27,988 passengers in the first six months of 2011. That equates to 758 passengers, an increase of 2.64 per cent over last year.

As well as an increase in traffic through Prince Rupert, the Northwest Regional Airport just outside of Terrace has seen a substantial increase in passenger traffic. So far this year 64,548 passengers have moved through the airport compared to 54,529 last year, a more than 10,000 passenger increase. Airport manager Carman Hendry attributes the increase to “the pickup in the industry in the region”.
