For June 13-20, Vancouver Airport handled 830 movements, which is an increase of 10.08% compared to the same period last year.

In comparison to 2019’s figures, this means that the airport is chasing around 35 movements to match pre-COVID levels, showing how close they are to achieving this.

Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data surrounding the airport:

What you can see from the data is that you can tell when Vancouver Airport began the peak period of the Summer season, with the percentage increases quite substantial at this point.

Looking ahead, it will be interesting to see what the data will look like for the airport in the months of July and August, which is the Summer holiday period for many across the world.

Within that period, the airport could very well achieve pre-pandemic levels and even exceed it. All eyes are on them.
