NAV CANADA reports April traffic figures



    OTTAWA, June 1 /CNW Telbec/ - NAV CANADA today announced its traffic
figures for April 2009, as measured in weighted charging units for en-route,
terminal and oceanic air navigation services, in comparison to the same month
in 2008.
    The traffic in April 2009 decreased by an average of 8 per cent compared
to the same month in 2008. The actual year-to-date traffic decline as of April
30th is 5.1 per cent, or 4.7 per cent on a normalized basis given that
February 2009 had one less day than February 2008 due to the leap year. The
NAV CANADA fiscal year runs from September 1 to August 31.
    Weighted charging units represent a traffic measure that reflects the
number of flights, aircraft size and distance flown in Canadian airspace.
    These traffic figures are also available in graph form on NAV CANADA's
web site at www.navcanada.ca.

    NAV CANADA, the country's civil air navigation services provider, is a
private sector, non-share capital corporation financed through publicly-traded
debt. With operations coast to coast, NAV CANADA provides air traffic control,
flight information, weather briefings, aeronautical information services,
