The logistics and aviation services firm AOG has just released its data on North American airports.
Montréal-Trudeau ranks among the continent’s 32 major airports as it accounts for at least 1% of all seats offered on scheduled flights in North America.
The ranking includes six performance measures that are; Busiest Airports, Fastest Growing Airports, The Trailblazers, Global Gateways, Turnaround King and Low-Cost Collaborators. The reference period is June 2018 to May 2019 except for the Turnaround King, which runs from May 2018 to April 2019.
Montréal-Trudeau ranks among the top ten with four measures; Fastest Growing Airports, The Trailblazers, Global Gateways and is number one as a Turnaround King.
With 4.8% growth for the period from June 2018 to May 2019, Montréal-Trudeau ranks 10th just behind Boston-Logan at 5.25 and Seattle-Tacoma at 5.4%. In the Fastest Growing measure.
As a TrailBlazer, Montreal-Trudeau ranks sixth with 10 more routes for the reference period, one less than Philadelphia and one more than Washington Dulles.
As a Global Gateway, Montréal-Trudeau ranks fourth with 103 destinations behind Miami, which has 112 and ahead of Los Angeles, which has 90. (Surprisingly, some people here keep on saying that Montréal-Trudeau is just a small regional airport.)
To measure the efficiency of airports, AOG estimates the difference between arrivals on time and departures on time. An efficient airport makes it possible to catch up on arrival delays and to have departures on time. As a Turnaround King Montreal-Trudeau is first in front of Lester-B. Pearson and Newark Liberty.>>> Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
