You said it: frequent flyers comment on Canadian airports
Here's what Canadians feel about some of their major airports


Canwest News Service

Friday, July 04, 2008

VANCOUVER

. Vancouver travel agent Scott Clute likes the physical layout of Vancouver International Airport because it's easy to access and everything is under one roof.

"At least you can physically get from one end of the airport to the other without leaving the building," he said. "It's not like other airports with separate terminals that force you to connect by shuttle bus."

Clute said he also likes the airport's outside signage that makes it clear to departing passengers where each airline is located.

But he feels there are not enough security checkpoints to handle the volume of passengers, which creates large lineups. He also complained that security measures at the airport are not consistent.

"Passengers have to go through rigorous security but I've seen catering trucks go through the airport perimeter without being checked," Clute said.


. Calgary resident Lindsay Clarkson, who often flies to Vancouver on business, said the customs area at the airport is a "zoo" if a few international flights arrive at the same time and has often waited up to an hour to clear customs.

She also complained that a moving sidewalk in the domestic terminal always seems to be broken, forcing a long walk from one gate to another.

But Clarkson stressed the international terminal - with its water features and artifacts - is "absolutely beautiful," an opinion she has heard from many other frequent flyers.

"It's a nice airport but it just seems to be always in transition and always under construction," she said. "Will it ever be finished?"

EDMONTON

. Ron Cocking, of Melbourne, Australia, who was recently in Edmonton to visit friends, said he thinks the airport "is fantastic."

"We got dropped off, walked over, pressed a few buttons (on the self-check-in kiosk) and we were through."

Added Diana Cocking: "We got through customs in five minutes coming in. Melbourne's a very good airport, but it takes longer there than here. You can find you way around here very easily too."

. Linda Farching, of Edmonton: "The shuttle dropped me off at the right gate and the self check-in is very quick. The security screening is quick too. In Saskatoon I've lined up for 15 or 20 minutes."

. Anne Steiner, of Strathcona County, visiting her daughter in Fort McMurray: "I don't drive so I took a bus from Strathcona County to the Hotel Macdonald and took the Sky Shuttle. It's great and only $15. The self check-in is good but I need help with it and I can usually find someone. At Fort McMurray my daughter helps me with it.

"I get easily lost at large airports but Edmonton is easy to get around."

. Roy Winder, of Edmonton, seeing off his daughter to Vancouver: "It's a good airport but it depends on where you park. They're going to need more parking soon. My wife uses a wheelchair and at other airports they have golf carts to get people like that around."

. Jenna Winder, of Vancouver: "It's way better than Vancouver. The fast check-in is fabulous. Vancouver's only an hour-and-half flight so I don't bother with the food services here, but there seems to be a good choice."

WINDSOR

. Roger and Ann Sadler, who live in Windsor, travel regularly to Winnipeg to visit relatives and would like see direct flights from Windsor to Western Canada, rather than having to make connections at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.

But Roger Sadler, who is retired from Chrysler Canada, said: "We've never had any problems flying through here and the fact we live 10 minutes away makes any flight from here very convenient.

"I'd like see a few more amenities, such as more food and beverage locations, but generally it's a hassle-free experience."

. Roger Friis, who works for Mackenzie Financial and lives about 45 minutes from the airport, travels regularly to Toronto on business and also finds Windsor to be easy and convenient.

"You don't have to arrive 90 minutes ahead of time. You can basically get here 30 minutes before the flight and walk right on," said Friis.

"As a result, I don't find the lack of amenities an issue because I'm rarely here long enough to notice," he said. "Parking's cheap and even the long-term lot is only a two-minute walk, so this airport provides a much more enjoyable flying experience than some of the larger airports."

. For Colette Hooson, a Windsor-based national representative for the Canadian Auto Workers union, the lack of amenities is more than balanced by the convenience.

"No matter where you live in Windsor, you're no more than 20 minutes away. Parking's always plentiful and available and it's always spotlessly clean," said Hooson, who flies to Toronto on union business on a regular basis.

. Jeffrey Dale, chief executive of the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation, a lobby group, said most airports like Ottawa need more gates.

"Have you ever sat in an airplane at 5 p.m. on a Friday, waiting 30 minutes or more for a gate to open?"

He said that Canadian airports have generally managed growing traffic demand prudently.

The addition of custom pre-clearance services and more direct flights to major U.S. and European centres is relieving pressure at major hub airports like Toronto and reducing the environmental and fuel costs of takeoffs and landings.

He said that concerns about high fuel costs and the environmental costs of air travel is leading more companies to use advanced teleconference technology and other communication tools.

"But most deals still require face time and that means continued business travel."

OTTAWA

. Rod Bryden, former Ottawa Senators owner and chief executive of Plasco Energy, which makes technology that turns garbage into energy, doesn't see the current airport building boom ending soon.

He has travelled extensively for years, for the NHL hockey club, as chief executive of WorldHeart Corp. and now in his involvement with several ventures, including Plasco.

"I think the airports are likely to be congested for the foreseeable future. We also will fill the highways with additional traffic, despite the fact that road transport is the largest single source of greenhouse gases."

. Bob Ridpath, director of global travel for Nortel Networks, says business travel in India is significantly cheaper than in other countries. In addition, expansion of airports in Delhi and Mumbai has improved travel times and efficiency.

Air Canada slashes flights to China
Tourism officials concerned about possible impact on number of Chinese visitors to B.C.


Vancouver Sun
Published: Friday, July 04, 2008

Air Canada has slashed its Vancouver-to-Beijing/Shanghai service from 14 flights a week to seven as the airline cuts costs in response to record fuel prices.

The airline announced Friday that effective Oct. 26, it will fly from Vancouver to Beijing three times a week and from Vancouver to Shanghai four times. It currently offers a daily service to both Chinese cities.

The service reduction worries B.C. tourism officials trying to boost the number of Chinese visitors to the province. Travel to B.C. will be showcased to media and tour operators in Beijing this summer during the Olympics.

"Obviously this is troubling for us because we're completely at the mercy of airlift capacity to drive long-haul business," Tourism BC president Rod Harris said in an interview.

Canada is still trying to nail down an Approved Destination Status deal with China, which would allow more Chinese residents to travel to this country. But Harris notes that even without that status, China remains a vital market for B.C.

More than 91,000 Chinese residents visited B.C. last year, putting it ahead of other international markets like Germany, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The average Chinese visitor in 2006 spent more than $2,800.

Tourism BC expected a modest increase in Chinese visitations to B.C. this year, but Harris said those prospects could be affected by the reduction in Air Canada's flights.

The airline announced last month it would cut its system capacity by seven per cent and shed up to 2,000 jobs to become more efficient as fuel costs skyrocket. Previously announced route cancellations and suspensions include Vancouver-Osaka, Vancouver-Sacramento, Calgary-Prince George, Calgary-Comox and Toronto-Kelowna.

"We prefer to maintain the integrity of the network by opting for reduced flight frequencies, rather than cancellations, and that's what we have done here by keeping a daily non-stop service between Vancouver and China," Air Canada representative Angela Mah said in an interview.

She noted the service cuts don't take effect until the fall, when demand traditionally drops off - indicating the airline is satisfied with the current passenger load.

"We match capacity with demand, so we will maintain our double-daily flights from Vancouver to China throughout the summer," Mah said.

She said service cutbacks announced at the airline so far represent the "vast majority" of planned autumn and winter schedule reductions, although Air Canada will continue to evaluate future demand.

University of B.C. associate professor Marc-David Seidel doubts the cutbacks will have a huge impact on travel between Canada and China, noting Air China and China Eastern Airlines still offer regular services from Vancouver to Beijing and Shanghai.

He said Air Canada's decision to maintain a reduced service to the two cities will make it easier to boost it in the future when the need arises.

"If they had pulled out entirely, it would have been harder to re-enter in the future because they'd have to renegotiate local contracts," Seidel explained. "By keeping some service, it's very easy to add capacity later."

Cathay Pacific Airways recently announced rising costs would force it to reduce its Vancouver-to-Hong Kong service from 21 flights a week to 17 by mid-September.

Vancouver International Airport Authority chief financial officer Glenn McCoy said the airport has expected airline cutbacks, given the rising cost of fuel.

"It's a concern whenever you have a reduction in capacity," he said. "But I think we still have a very good stable financial base that will allow us to withstand the impact of this."

The Air Canada cuts are quite dramatic - about 50%. Are they having major loading issues on those routes?

All the Air China flights I've been on from YVR have been full, and I can't imagine demand for Vancouver-China flights decreasing right now. It's probably the higher Canadian wages combined with soaring fuel prices.

Cathay Pacific is lowering its weekly Vancouver-Hong Kong flights from 21 to 17 and will be using more of its smaller and even older planes.....fuel costs are at fault once again.


Too bad, both Cathay and Air Canada are lowering their weekly flights to China when there is so much demand between China and Vancouver.

Vancouver airport group in hunt to buy London's Gatwick

Vancouver airport group in hunt to buy London's Gatwick

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver International Airport Authority is part of a $3.1-billion bid to purchase Gatwick Airport, according to reports.

YVR Airport Services Ltd., a subsidiary of the Vancouver Airport Authority owned jointly by the airport authority and the infrastructure division of U.S. banking giant Citibank, is putting in the bid for London's second-largest airport, The Times of London reported Sunday.

If successful, the move would catapult YVRAS into the big leagues of airport management, according to industry experts.

"It would be a significant step forward into a very, very large hub airport," said Rick Erickson, managing director of RP Erickson and Associates, a Calgary-based aviation consulting group. "This will put them in a new league and it may open other substantial doors for them in the future."

YVRAS reported $440 million in revenue last year and manages 18 airports around the world, mostly in the Western Hemisphere, including facilities in Chile, the Bahamas and Jamaica, It also manages smaller airports in the B.C. cities of Cranbrook, Fort St. John and Kamloops as well as Moncton, N.B.

In 2006, it partnered with Dutch company ABN Amro for an unsuccessful bid to run London's City Airport.

In May, it partnered with Citibank and, just last month, backed by the bank's considerable financial heft, it won a 99-year-lease values at $2.52-billion US to operate Chicago's Midway Airport.

But Gatwick, by far, would be the largest gem in the YVRAS airport empire, said Erickson.

About 35 million passengers pass through the London airport's terminals annually - double the traffic through Vancouver airport last year.

Its acquisition would open doors for future management contracts with airports in Asia or the Middle East, said Erickson, making it well-poised to capitalize on a trend that began 10 to 15 years ago when governments began to divest airports and airport management to the private sector.

"With a great track record, in three or five years, there's no doubt they can go after other major airports," said Erickson, who added the well-managed Vancouver International Airport is one of the stars in the airport world and makes for a great calling card.


YVRAS officials refused to confirm the bid Sunday.

In an e-mail to The Vancouver Province, CEO George Casey said the "primary focus of Vancouver Airport Services' immediate efforts is on operating and developing Chicago Midway Airport," and that it "continues to monitor other opportunities, but has no immediate additional plans."

Gatwick owner BAA put the London airport on sale last month following a ruling ordering them to shed three of its seven U.K. airports for competition purposes.

Other potential bidders include Frankfurt Airport operator Fraport, German construction firm Hochtief, German airlines Lufthansa and Global Infrastructure Partners, a consortium made up of Credit Suisse and General Electric Co., which bought London's City Airport two years ago for $1.5 billion US.


Erickson said the fact that the bid is being made during today's struggling economic times might not be a big factor as airports, which have near-monopolies within their geographic areas, have proven to be consistent, attractive long-term investments.

YVR does not have experience handling an airport the size of LGW though. Is this purely a monetary investment?

VANCOUVER -- YVR has gone up against some of North America's top airports and soared to the top.

The Vancouver International Airport beat out 140 other airports to win the Richard A. Griesbach Award of Excellence winner in the 2010 Airport Concessions Contest. The purpose of the Airports Council International-North America contest is to inspire creativity in the industry and to recognize innovative and outstanding airport concessions.

Contest organizers cited YVR's 167 shops, services and restaurants and its series of 10 zoned streets and plazas that showcase regions of B.C. and feature artwork, water-features, aquariums, and unique interior design.

Concourse C at YVR placed second in the best specialty retail category for small- and medium-sized airports.

“Now in our thirteenth year of holding the Richard A. Griesbach Excellence in Airport Concessions Contest, ACI-NA congratulates Vancouver as this year’s overall award of excellence winner,” said ACI-NA President Greg Principato. “These award-winning entries help promote the innovative spirit within the airport concessions industry as well as showcase the best programs in North America.”
