Buttonville is now the 8th busiest airport in Canada, up 14.6% from last year with 168,258 aircraft movements in 2007.
I have no explanation for the increase other than perhaps just an overall increase in the use of the airport by more students at Toronto Airways, the OPP and York Region Police utilizing the airport.
This is good news for an airport thats constantly under threat of being shutdown.
It’s the second busiest airport in Ontario, beating out Ottawa International.
