The Winnipeg Airports Authority credits diversified revenue streams and a growing airport campus for a “positive” second quarter.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $20.9 million, compared to $18.8 million in the same quarter for 2011.
During the second quarter, WAA announced a new 7-Eleven, Petro-Canada, and Harvey’s restaurant to be added to the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.
“Diversifying revenue streams and growing the airport campus have been two of our main objectives, and we are pleased to see the positive results,” said Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority Inc.
“This diversification not only translates into more jobs for those in our community but helps to offset increasing costs, maintaining low costs for carriers serving this market and making Richardson International the airport of choice in our region.”
The new air terminal was named one of the World’s Most Iconic Airports by the Travel Channel, and one of the Coolest New Airport Terminals by Travel & Leisure.
