There were 365,679 aircraft take-offs and landings at the 93 Canadian airports with NAV CANADA air traffic control towers and flight service stations in February 2013 compared with 407,337 movements in February 2012. The decline in aircraft movements can be partly attributed to the extra day for the leap year in 2012.
Itinerant movements (flights from one airport to another) decreased (-27,245 movements) in February 2013 from the same month in 2012. These airports reported 265,282 movements compared with 292,527 movements in February 2012.
There were 100,397 local movements (flights that remain in the vicinity of the airport) in February 2013 compared with 114,810 movements in February 2012.
