Arizona is big for all western provinces, but proportionally AB is the most I'd say. The East is Florida, Myrtle Beach, etc. plus of course all the more easily accessible Caribbean destinations that are a major trek from the west. BC has lots of California (Palm Springs mainly), plus AZ, and then of course Hawaii is the biggie for us here.

Lots of prairies going to Palm Springs and other parts of Socal. We were just in PSP and there's a fair amount of representation from all of Western Canada.

The same thing is happening in Ottawa. For example, I was going to book the train to Toronto in a couple of weeks (on a reward seat) but opted for Porter instead.

The number of people in Edmonton with places in Palm Springs/Desert/PHX or time shares in L.V. is astonishing.

Most of these airports have published full year figures, except for the obvious culprits, as usual (YUL, YYZ, JFK, EWR, ORD). Once they do, i'll publish the full year figures.

About time. Great numbers ! Especially international.

Overall international+transborder is at 13,112,990 +6.8%. Thats 831,000 more than in 2018. YUL passed ATL in 2019, and will pass YVR in 2020. (YVR finished the year with 13,713,885 +1.7%, and will most likely be in negative territory in 2020)

looks like YVR will get hit big time if this corona virus isnt contained.

Even if they announce it's contained tomorrow, damage is already done. Visitor numbers to China will stay low for the rest of the year, if not longer. Heck, on the news today, they were saying places like Thailand and Vietnam are feeling it, as visitor numbers are lower there as well. People are already planning their summer 2020 vacations, and it's a guarantee East Asia isn't at the top of their minds. Japan is hosting the Olympics this year, so will be interesting to see how this impacts visitor numbers there. Japan, being a "cleaner" country, might be able to mitigate the tourism decline somewhat.

YVR and LAX are probably the 2 airports in North America that will feel it the most, as they have the most Chinese flights. LAX intl numbers were already in negative territory to finish off 2019. It will be the same in 2020. So will YVR's number.

Yup! I agree, it will have a major impact on traffic at YVR....

Exactly. Although I would say that Vegas is a relatively popular destination due to all the stuff there that you really only find in Vegas (although note that there are no direct YHZ-LAS flights). My main point is that the idea that Phoenix would be seen as a vacation/touristy place while Montreal would not be is the opposite of what I'm used to. (Also bear in mind that my main frame of reference is people in their 20s and 30s, not snowbirds or retirees)

My parents snowbirded in Palm Springs for years. They've recently changed to Mexico. It seems like the Baja has its far share of Canadians.

And that's only counting "escape the cold" type getaways, which are certainly common here, although not necessarily the dominant type of leisure travel.

To put this another way, personally I know way more people who have gone to Montreal for leisure this winter than all sun destinations combined.

AC seems to have removed the YYZ tag from AC9/10 this summer, operating solely as YYC-NRT-YYC (from what I can see).

Also YYC-LHR looks to have upgraded to a 77W right through summer too.

Air Canada looks to be buying 4 more A330s this year, and keeping the 767 at mainline for the rest of the year.

I'm sure there are still a dozen more changes before we actually have the real summer schedule.

MAX's are still all over the place for July. YVR-YUL, all 3 YUL-SFO still show 7M8.
