Drove past the airport last week, and noticed that the low beige brick Air Canada building has been demolished and the space is being cleared. Anyone know what is going on here?

Also, I find that Pearson does a poor job of updating the public, with respect to new and ongoing projects. IF you are interested in finding something out, you end up having to go through 4 different links just to find some very outdated hoarding photos on Instagram.

GTAA Official Results for 2015

Link:
https://canadianaviationnews.wordpress.com/

Détails:
TORONTO , March 23, 2016 /CNW/ – The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (the “GTAA”) today reported its financial and operating results for the fiscal year ended December 31 , 2015. Passenger volumes grew by 6.4 per cent during 2015 as compared to 2014, reflecting both the economic strength of the Greater Toronto Region, and the role of Toronto Pearson as Canada’s largest airport and North America’s second busiest airport in terms of international passengers.

“Toronto Pearson served 41 million passengers in 2015, showing that there is continued demand for air travel in southern Ontario. We have also seen continued growth in our role as a hub – more people are connecting through Toronto Pearson as part of their global travels,” said Howard Eng , President and CEO of the GTAA. “These higher passenger volumes show the need for increased support from government agency resourcing and technology to ensure a seamless airport experience.”

As a global hub airport, Toronto Pearson has a robust network offering direct flights to 144 international and 30 Canadian cities. During 2015, passenger activity in the international sector (which includes US transborder) increased by 7.7 per cent, and domestic sector activity increased by 4.4 per cent, over prior year.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 , the GTAA reported total revenues of $1.2 billion , compared to $1.15 billion in 2014. The continued growth in revenues was a reflection of large passenger growth over the last two years and the strong performance from the non-aeronautical commercial business. During 2015, there were 21 new retail stores, restaurants and service openings, including twelve in Terminal 1 and nine in Terminal 3, which includes seven new openings in the newly renovated and reopened Pier A.

Total operating expenses in 2015 were $776.9 million , a $45.1 million increase when compared to 2014. During 2015, the GTAA continued to invest in preventative maintenance, additional airport security and improving the customer experience. Additional initial set-up costs were incurred when the GTAA took over the Deicing Operations in July 2015 from a third party service provider.

Earnings before interest and financing costs were $423.7 million and $421.8 million in 2015 and 2014, respectively. After accounting for interest and financing costs, the GTAA recorded net income of $65.9 million in 2015 versus a net loss of $59.6 million in 2014. By excluding a one-time charge of $102.3 million recorded in 2014 related to the GTAA’s purchase and cancellation of $399.3 million face value of its outstanding debt, the GTAA generated net income of $42.7 million in 2014. Net income is reinvested in the Airport for new initiatives to improve Airport operations and customer service, to fund capital projects or to repay existing debt.

The GTAA’s 2015 financial results are discussed in more detail in the GTAA’s Financial Statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2015 , which are available at http://www.torontopearson.com and on the Canadian Securities Administrators’ website at http://www.sedar.com.

The GTAA is the operator of Toronto Pearson International Airport.

As we all know, Brussels Airlines was to start on March 26/27 but this has been pushed back due to the attacks.

New Start Date is planned as follows:
Previously planned Zurich – Toronto service on Sunday (27MAR16) is being cancelled, and planned Toronto service launch is being delayed at least until 03APR16 at the earliest.

The Brussels Airport is supposed to be reopened on Tuesday March 29th. I wish SN every success on their flights and everyone injured a speedy recovery. Deepest sympathies to all of those who passed away. Truly a sad day no matter where these incidents happen.

Growth of 6.1 for Pearson.

http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases...579248681.html

TORONTO, May 12, 2016 /CNW/ - The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (the "GTAA") today reported its financial and operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2016. Passenger volumes grew by 5.7 per cent during the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the first quarter of 2015, reflecting both the economic strength of the Greater Toronto Region, and the role of Toronto Pearson International Airport as Canada's largest airport and North America's second busiest airport in terms of international passengers.

"Toronto Pearson's continued growth is reflective of the economic strength of the region," said Howard Eng, President and CEO of the GTAA. "Our financial position is strong and we continue to pay down debt while enhancing the passenger experience such as additional self-serve options."

A total of 9.9 million passengers travelled through Toronto Pearson in the first three months of 2016. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2016, passenger activity in the domestic sector increased by 6.1 per cent and the international sector by 5.4 per cent, over the same period in 2015. The domestic sector has risen sharply due to a shift in flight activity to Toronto Pearson from other parts of the country.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the GTAA reported total revenues of $303.7 million, an $18.4 million improvement from the same period in 2015. The continued growth in revenues was a reflection of continued passenger growth, $6 million generated from the Deicing Operations and the strong performance from the non-aeronautical commercial business. For the first two months of 2016 (why only 2 months when we are providing 3 month Q1 disclosure?], the retail stores' sales per enplaned passenger at Toronto Pearson were $20.16 versus $18.95 for the same period in 2015, a 6.4 per cent increase. This was due to the opening of over 20 new retail stores year-over-year and the introduction of new and enhanced products and services. Retail stores' sales are the sales generated by the GTAA's retail tenants who pay a percentage of their sales to the GTAA as rent. Retail stores include restaurant and beverage establishments.

Total operating expenses during the first quarter of 2016 were $152.3 million, a $14.1 million increase when compared to the first quarter of 2015. During the first three months of 2016, the GTAA continued to invest in initiatives to improve the customer experience. Additional costs were incurred in the first quarter of 2016, when compared to the first quarter of 2015, due to the GTAA's decision to in-source Deicing Operations in July 2015; as a result thereof, operational costs also increased.

Earnings before interest and financing costs were $90.4 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2016. After accounting for interest and financing costs, the GTAA recorded net income of $4.0 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to net loss of $1.2 million in the comparable 2015 period.

Seems like China Southern has shelved plans for YYZ. Unless this is just a temporary thing and it will be reinstated. Not sure why it would be shelved all of a sudden.

Rumour is that the CZ flight to YYZ is on hold due to delays in getting a required revision to the Canada-China bilateral... with the guilty party being Canada...

CZ are still planning the route, with a possible start now early December....

Quite a rare thing to see an A321 doing a flight over the pond.

Here we go again. Sorry, don't have unrestricted access to CAPA, but here is a different article about it:

It makes sense. There has got to be a decent amount of passengers flying between India and Toronto.

Looking at CAPA and they are also reporting an early December 2016 start. Don't have access to provide a link. They are also reporting an increase in YYZ - CDG on AC.
