Muskoka Airport, Ontario: Fuel sales losing altitude

MUSKOKA – District of Muskoka councillors at an Oct. 21 meeting questioned why fuel sales at the Muskoka Airport have dipped by 25 percent.

Samantha Hastings, acting commissioner of planning and economic development, said the entire aviation industry was experiencing declines.

“The airport manager has advised me that there is a general downturn in the aviation industry this year. Other than that, I can’t really explain why we would have a lower number of flights this year than in previous years,” said Hastings.

But she noted that staff is finding ways to reduce spending at the airport to make up for the shortfall.
