ful yet for WAA. Te sensational year began with acknowledgement of our 20th anniversary. On January 1, 1997, WAA gained management of the federal lands here at the airport cam- pus. Over the past 20 years, we’ve gained more than a million annual passengers to reach more than four mil- lion people coming through our new terminal’s door each year.

Nearly 900,000 passengers came through our doors in both months combined. Tose weren’t the only major events this year. Of course,


the return of Emad Tishko Tamo was a monumental and heartwarming moment for members of the Yazidi com- munity and a testament to the power of connection that social media and Canada provides – the reunion hap- pened on a late evening, lighting up our airport on a pow- erful August night.
