Business or pleasure?

This is kind of interesting.  Statistics Canada has tabulated the air traffic volume to/from Canadian and U.S. cities.  NYC and Toronto, understandably, is the most used route.  Halifax’s top paired destinations are NYC, Orlando, Boston and Washington.  Moncton makes the list with only two destinations:  Orlando, and Vegas.

Hmm…

Here is the list of top Moncton destinations (to/from total).  It’s a bit depressing that the top four locations are pleasure travel (not business).  it is interesting that Silicon Valley is in the top 10.

One Response to Business or pleasure?

  1. Many business conferences are held in Vegas, and as much as I don’t like the city, I have been there on business several times. Also, one of the biggest conferences in my field is held in Orlando each year. Don’t assume it’s all pleasure travel.
