St. John's International Airport to Double in Size


St. John's International Airport will double in size over the next 8 years. The Airport Authority held its annual meeting last evening in St. John's. Chair Darlene Whelan says the airport will add some 200-thousand square feet of new airport terminal space to accommodate the province's growing economy.

A record 1.4-million passengers passed through the airport in 2011, more than any other year on record. By 2020 it's predicted that some 1.9-million will pass through the airport terminals.

The airport will double in size by 2020, with some 200-thousand square feet being added to both the east and west ends of the existing building. More terminals, plane space, baggage and passenger areas will be added.

Starting in June, construction will begin on a new airport access road that will replace the road that has been used to enter the airport for decades. The new road will be built further up Portugal Cove road, and will bring visiting traffic to the east end of the airport for access. The existing road will be used for employee and truck traffic only.

She says this year people in the area will begin to notice changes in the airport parking lots as well as the construction of the new airport access road.

The installation of the $26-million CAT 3 ILS landing system will begin in July, and once complete will eliminate fog as a flight canceller for 70-thousand passengers annually.

As the province's oil sector continues to flow and expand, it's expected that all helicopter traffic to and from offshore oil rigs could end up passing through the airport to depart and arrive, instead of using the existing Cougar base now.

Construction and upgrades at the airport are not expected to disrupt airport operations in 2012, however delays and disruptions for travellers are expected to begin in 2013. Whelan says the long term benefits of the airport upgrades will outweigh the short term delays that are expected next year.

She says the current building is designed for 900-thousand people per year, a huge increase from the 1990s. Whelan says the renovations have been designed using a 'conservative approach'.

I sure hope that YYC improves after the epansion. For a city it's size, the airport isn't nearly big enough now. It looks like there is a lot of progress being made though. Hopefully the expansuion will make it a bigger and better airport with a better terminal. :D

I'm pretty sure once the expansion is complete YYC will be double it's size which is pretty huge for a city of it's size.

I just flew out of Bournemouth, UK with Ryanair. It's certainly a smaller airport, but with lower cost airlines, it offers great deals on international flights. This is very common in European countries and the U.S. as well. The total price for the flight to Pisa, Italy and back was £70. One thing I do notice is that many UK and European airports are more "bare bones" than Canadian airports. Do Canadian airports have higher fees because the airports are posher? It's nice to have glitzy airports, but if it drives up landing fees and forces people to drive or not travel as much by air, is it worth it?

The number I've heard is in the ball park of 25 to 75 billion US $. That's pretty big considering the transportation budget is 3% of the total budget.

Is the YYC actually building a new separate International terminal building? Or will it just be a big section attached to the existing terminal building?

Does anyone have any recent photos of the Calgary Airport international terminal expansion?

Pete Crawford Aug 19, 2012 10:39 AM

Oh, and for my bit, here's the progress on the new ALT Hotel going up at Halifax Stanfield International.

Stanfield will be completing its 10 year expansion soon by renovating its domestic/international check in hall to match the design of its arrivals and US check in wing (picture below). It's a pretty impressive rate of growth.

New Cargo Facility at Hamilton International Airport to Boost Region's Economy

http://www.marketwire.com/press-rele...my-1744475.htm

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2013) - Local businesses, cargo carriers and freight shippers will soon benefit from major infrastructure improvements to the Hamilton International Airport, thanks to a joint funding initiative announced today by the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Labour and Member of Parliament for Halton, and the Honourable Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Infrastructure and Minister of Transportation.

A 60,000-square-foot cross-dock will be built to accommodate the growing air cargo business at the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. This new facility will include multiple truck docks; refrigeration for perishables such as flowers, fruits and vegetables and pharmaceutical products; a live animal centre; as well as cargo and courier handling facilities.

"Hamilton International Airport is a growing gateway for international trade and this new cargo facility will help the region's economy remain competitive and well-positioned for the future," said Minister Raitt. "Our infrastructure investments are an important driver of economic growth and job creation here in Ontario and across Canada."

"The Hamilton International Airport serves as an international gateway to south-western Ontario so our government is very pleased to be able to support its improvement," said Minister Chiarelli. "This is another example of Ontario's commitment to public infrastructure that contributes to long-term economic growth for the region and the province."

"The airport is a city-owned asset that has seen huge growth in cargo operations in recent years," said Bob Bratina, Mayor for the City of Hamilton. "This strategic investment will allow the airport to continue to develop Hamilton's air cargo business, providing more economic benefits to the city and region."

"I am thrilled with today's investment by the provincial and federal governments." said Frank Scremin, President and CEO, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. "It recognizes the importance of Hamilton as a transportation gateway at both a provincial and national level. We are very proud to have one of the strongest domestic air cargo distribution networks in Canada; this facility will provide an opportunity to expand upon existing business by allowing a greater variety of goods to be moved through the Airport."

The governments of Canada and Ontario are delivering an $8 million joint investment for the construction of this new facility. An additional $4 million is being invested by TradePort International Corporation, the management body responsible for the airport. The total eligible cost of this initiative is $12 million.

The actual project team has not been announced yet. I have seen some preliminary drawings for one submition, that show 4 Jet ways, larger baggage and arrivals hall but not much else. The location appears to be just north of the current terminal.

The new GO connection from the PATH connection to Union Station that will only service Pearson. This section of the path has been dead for years so it's a good use of wasted space.

I've heard conflicting reports, some saying the original Delta will stay open as a lower cost option, and of course the other rumour that the Delta will close when this one is ready to open up.

If closure are thinking about removing it to give the garage more space and flow?

Yeah, I'm quite impressed with the breadth of infrastructure improvements going on nation-wide.

Vancouver recently fully reno-d their airport, built a new skytrain line to their airport
Calgary doubling the size of their airport, built a new LRT line, and proposed an LRT connection to the airport
Edmonton vastly increasing the size of their airport, building new LRT line
Saskatoon vastly increasing the size of their airport, ring road nearly complete, council starting to talk about a future LRT system
Regina ?
Winnipeg vastly increased the size of their airport, constructed first leg of a dedicated BRT
Toronto building a link between airport and Union Station
Montreal ?
Quebec City's gorgeous addition to their airport, council starting to talk about a future LRT system
Halifax increasing size of their airport, council starting to talk about a future LRT system


basically every major city is doing something. When was the last time this happened? The 60s?

Northern Alberta politicians tour new medevac service at Edmonton International Airport


BY ALEXANDRA ZABJEK, EDMONTON JOURNAL MARCH 13, 2013

EDMONTON - Planeloads of northern Albertans flew into the Edmonton International Airport Wednesday to inspect the gleaming white hangar that government officials insist will provide timely medical treatment and transportation once it opens later this week.

The 3,600-square-metre air ambulance base at the EIA opened its doors to almost 200 people, including 14 MLAs, mayors and councillors from northern municipalities, and a slew of media from places such as Grande Prairie who were flown in for the event. The City Centre Airport will stop taking medevac flights on Friday.

“I don’t actually think it’s about politics. I think it’s about demonstrating first-hand for people the care that’s taken to consider quality and to consider patient safety,” Health Minister Fred Horne said about the event.

St. John's as well is doubling the size of the Airport and upgrading the runway system so that 98% of flights will get in and out no matter the fog ;)

Regina's got plans too. Recently a large atrium on the upper floor of the terminal was converted to seating space due to shortages of seating during busy flight periods, and a NEXUS security lane was added. A major terminal renovation/reconstruction is scheduled - I believe it's planned to begin about 2015.

Passenger volume is now over 1.2 million passengers a year and we have scheduled service to YVR, YEG, YYC, YXE, YWG, YYZ, YOW, PHX, LAS, DEN, MSP and ORD plus the usual winter charters.
