John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport is pleased to release its 2012 Year in Review.

In 2012 Hamilton International saw 5.7% increases in passenger traffic over 2011, as a result of successful winter charter programs by both WestJet and Transat, strong domestic performance by WestJet and the introduction of weekly service to Kapuskasing with Bearskin Airlines.
