Victoria airport named most efficient of its size in North America

The recognition comes from the 2022 Global Airport Performance Benchmarking Report

Victoria International Airport (YYJ) has been named North America’s most efficient airport in the under 5 million passengers category in the 2022 Global Airport Performance Benchmarking Report.

This is the fourth time in the past 10 years that YYJ has received this award with previous recognition in 2014, 2016, and 2020, according to a news release.

The Air Transport Research Society (ATRS), a worldwide research network headquartered at the University of British Columbia, issues the report to provide a comparison of global airport performance and focuses on productivity, operating and management efficiency, unit cost competitiveness, and comparison of airport charges.

“We are delighted to be recognized as the most efficient airport in North America under 5 million passengers. Efficiency is our mantra and we have always been very proud of our ability to remain highly efficient by keeping costs low for our airlines and maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction,” said Geoff Dickson, Victoria Airport Authority president and CEO.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic created operating challenges, we remain an airport with some of the lowest aviation rates and fees in Canada. It has never been a more important time for us to continue this successful formula and do everything we can to support our airlines and exceed the level of service our customers expect.”

The 2022 report includes 204 airports and 25 airport groups of various sizes and ownership in the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America.
