The Airport Industry Calls for Emergency Aid as Pandemic Reduces Revenue

The Airports Canada Council (CAC) is calling for emergency government aid as travel restrictions continue to hurt airport revenues.

This organization represents more than 100 airports nationwide that require the government to perform COVID-19 testing at airports to reduce or eliminate quarantine restrictions and provide interest-free loans or direct operational assistance to airports, among other measures.

The federal government is ready to provide a specific aid package for the aviation industry, but so far has not shared any details about the plan.

The majority of Canada’s airports are not subsidized by the government, CAC said, relying instead on revenue from commuting passengers.

Since April, traffic at airports has fallen 90% year-on-year, while October passenger traffic is 85.5% lower than in October, according to CAC.

Canada’s airports supported nearly 200,000 jobs before the pandemic, CAC said.
