As part of the 25th edition of our annual Reputation study, we are proud to unveil the list of the most reputable airports in Canada in 2022, according to Canadians.
The COVID-19 pandemic hit the airport industry hard and continues to have lasting effects. With the implementation of domestic and international travel restrictions, the number of passengers passing through Canadian airports dropped rapidly, and revenue followed suit. Widespread layoffs also occurred, and many employees worried about their future as new variants of COVID-19 threatened to disrupt their job security.
Airports have also needed to remain agile and adapt to public health restrictions, including mandatory masking, checking passengers’ temperatures, enforcing vaccine regulations and more. Has the situation finally settled down, or will the turbulence continue? At this point, we are uncertain, but our Reputation study will continue to monitor Canadian airports’ performance year over year.
