Best Financial Performance in Gander International Airport's History
Passenger traffic at Gander grew 25% over 2014, marking the highest passenger totals at Gander since 1980 and the third most prolific year for passenger traffic in Gander's history.
The airport posted revenue of $10.7 Million and net operating income of $2.9 million, representing the best financial performance in the airport authority's history and 11th consecutive year of profit. Revenue increased 14% over 2014. However, like other small airports within NAS, Gander cannot access federal funds for a much-needed new terminal. The CAC continues to press the Government of Canada for changes to this inequitable system.
