Moncton airport boasts less fog

Moncton is hoping to capitalize on Halifax's recent airport troubles.
The Greater Moncton International Airport has taken out ads in a Halifax newspaper saying the New Brunswick city boasts the "best-weather international airport in Atlantic Canada."

Citing weather data to back up their claim, airport officials say Halifax has 122 fog days per year compared to Moncton's 60.

Rob Robichaud, airport general manager, said he got the idea for the new ad campaign while watching news stories about stranded passengers at the Halifax International Airport.


Well that clears things up.

    I've flown into that airport a few times. It's nice. It's uhh, tiny. And indeed, there was never fog. I wonder who did the ads. I have a buddy who's the creative director at a Halifax agency - I'll ask him.

    If you go to the Moncton airport site, on the right side of the page there's a What's New box that says:
    -----------------------
    1/15/2004
    Nothing New at this time
    -----------------------

    Nothing new in a year and a half.
    I though that was funny.

    Maybe Halifax airport can use that in a counter ad campaign against
    Moncton airport.
