Saint John Airport has a number of objectives attached to its strategic plan.
The plan is built on four pillars that diversify its revenue streams, expand air service and routes, drive community ownership, and improve facilities, processes and passenger experience.
Acting CEO Greg Hierlihy said the pandemic had further highlighted the need to rely on their “non-aeronautical revenues”, with land use planning as an example.
“We have just started the process of investigating the best approach to use our land base. We will have a very short term business plan to resolve this issue, ”Hierlihy said.
Hierlihy said they are also keen to work on developing their tenant base.
“In conjunction with our land development opportunities, our terminal concessions and our advertising. We believe there are opportunities with the return of passenger traffic, ”Hierlihy said.
The full plan was recently presented at a committee meeting attended by senior management, board of directors and staff from Saint John Airport, as well as representatives from Port Saint John, Envision Saint John, the Saint John Area House, NAV Canada, the provincial government and members of the business community.
