Fredericton International Airport posts eight per cent increase in traffic in 2016

Future growth limited by outdated and undersized terminal building

Although the Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) presented strong financial and traffic numbers at their 2017 Annual General Meeting, more than ten years of accommodating growth in an undersized and outdated terminal means that even the authority’s ingenuity is no longer enough to continue to keep growing within the current terminal.

Fredericton’s airport once again broke passenger traffic records in 2016, with 377,977 passengers traveling through the capital region’s airport. This represents an eight per cent (8%) increase in traffic compared to 2015, and is the seventh consecutive year of record-breaking growth.
