Just as an FYI, there was an advertizement from FlyGlobespan in the Go section of todays Hamilton Spectator.

Hope to see more of the over the next 8 months or more. Some billboards would be nice too around the city.

Work has started on expanding the check in area of the terminal by removing the curved wall to the east of check in. I hope to get some pictures next week.

Hey I saw on airliners.net that some of the flights in Economy are sold out to London Stanstead woo hoo. I actually checked the FlyGlobespan website site and its infact true. Several Things have changed including the fact that they advertise it as Hamilton International Airport as oppose to Toronto Hamilton International Airport. When you book through the Canadian Website.

www.flyglobespan.com

This is awesome.

38 days until Flyglobespan starts business at YHM!

Good to see it's now Hamilton International Airport instead of Toronto Hamilton International Airport lol. Personally I don't care just as long the airport is thriving with business even if it means attaching Toronto's name to it. Hell why not attach Niagara Falls as well.....Toronto Niagara Falls Hamilton International Airport lol.

I find this so strange. I know that the Brits identify their London airports like this (ie: London Gatwick, Stanstead, etc) but it's odd to see the airport attached to Toronto like this. I guess the Brits wouldn't be able to understand where Hamilton is. But the airport is owned by the City of Hamilton, right?

SteelTown Mar 25, 2007 4:00 PM

City owns the Airport but Tradeport, which YVRAS (Vancouver Airport) now owns, manages Hamilton Airport.

Does DHL do cargo business with Hamilton Airport?

I get loads of dry ice packages everyday at work and most come from YHM expect FedEx (says Mississauga on the label). With DHL it says YHM on the label.

I always choose Purolator over FedEx at work lol. Boo to FedEx.

Yes DHL serves YHM, well sorta. The flight comes from Toledo Ohio with DHL Packages on it but the flight is actually operated by Cargojet.

Fedex no longer flies there items through YHM its all done through YYZ(Toronto)

Found some renderings of the proposed new passenger terminal at Hamilton International Airport. They show what the airport was to look like by 2005. The pictures are not very detailed as when they where given out the final details where not worked out. I apologize about the picture quality. This is from a poster and it glared in all types of light. If the sun comes out this week I will try to photograph it outside.

That looks a lot better. I'm assuming this is what it'll look like after phase 3? The oval shape in the middle anything to the right of it is part of phase 2 correct? I'm guessing if everything is successful we could see phase 2 beginning.

I like how they show WestJet using the jet bridges at Hamilton Airport. Hopefully in the near future the Airport will go ahead and look like what's in the rendering.

Hamilton's airport, the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, is owned by the City of Hamilton and managed by the TradePort International Corporation. It is Canada's largest inter-modal freighter airport and services all major Canadian and international destinations. It is considered by many to be a key economic driver for the City of Hamilton. Today's announcement of ACAP funding will provide the $1,053,000 needed to purchase an airport fire-fighting vehicle.

too bad...that looks like a real airport.
Lots of glass and high ceilings. Life in Hamilton......

Hammer Town Apr 3, 2007 2:29 AM

Too bad they couldnt get more from that Fund to buy the Land for the Rwy Expansion.

As Fas as the Terminal goes that could still happen. Especially in FlyGlobespan continures to Sell out its flights to and from YHM.
