The Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and the Region of Waterloo International Airport Present a Point of View Luncheon with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority

November 10, 2016

Waterloo Region, ON – By 2043 southern Ontario will be home to 15.5 million people and regional air travel volume is expected to reach more than 90 million passengers annually. Air travel demand over the next two decades puts Toronto Pearson at roughly 65-70 million passengers annually with no signs of slowing down. One way forward is for airports to work together to understand the growing aviation demands and how each airport can play a complementary role in southern Ontario.

What could this mean for Waterloo Region and the Region of Waterloo International Airport?

Howard Eng, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, will join community leaders for a discussion on regional growth and how airports throughout southern Ontario are working together to plan for increased air service demand, including the need for better ground transportation access to support passengers and employees.

When:       Tuesday November 15, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Who:         Howard Eng – President and CEO, Greater Toronto Airports Authority

                   Tom Galloway – Chair, Planning and Works / Councillor, Region of Waterloo

                   Tony LaMantia – President and CEO, Waterloo Region Economic Development Corporation

                   Ian McLean – President and CEO, Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce
