Abbotsford – Applause and congratulations to YXX Abbotsford International Airport
for another record setting year in passenger volumes.
In 2017, a total of 677,653 passengers were serviced at YXX, which is an increase of 147,010 or 27.7 percent over 2016 passenger counts.
The airport has significant plans in the works to continue this growth. In 2018, YXX will add 14,000 square feet of new building space to the terminal building, two additional airline gates, and seating capacity in the secure area will double in size to accommodate 600 guests. These are only some of the exciting changes that will occur at YXX throughout 2018. YXX is also now home to four national airlines and there has been steady interest from other airlines to start service from YXX in 2018.
Key to YXX’s future success is its ongoing strategy to innovate and empower the business community. By using a partnership business model, Abbotsford airport is well- positioned for opportunities and further growth in 2018.
