National Airports System
Canada's National Airport System (NAS) was defined in the National Airports Policy published in 1994. It was intended to include all airports with an annual traffic of 200,000 passengers or more, as well as airports serving the national, provincial and territorial capitals.
As of 1994, the 26 NAS airports served 94% of all scheduled passenger and cargo traffic in Canada.
Due to very close proximity to the Province of Newfoundland, the islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon (an Overseas collectivity of France) cooperate with Canada on air travel via several major Canadian airports.
