Kamloops Airport busier — and more colourful
Passenger traffic at Kamloops Airport continues to increase.
The airport reported a six per cent jump in the number of bodies passing through the terminal in May, compared to May 2011, with 20,777 travellers compared to 19,474 in May of last year.
Through the first five months of 2012, Kamloops Airport has seen 115,840 travellers use the facility, a five per cent increase from the 109,951 travellers who passed through to the end of May 2011.
“Growth continues in both business and leisure travel sectors, with a new type of traveler for Kamloops — the migrant worker,’ said Fred Legace, the airport’s managing director.
“People are choosing to live in Kamloops and work in Alberta. With good connectivity, this is a growing group as well.”
Legace added that new planters installed by Lyons Landscaping have added colour to the airport, while incorporating a reservoir system to help the plants survive city summers.
