Winnipeg Airport investing $27m in infrastructure to boost airside access

The Winnipeg Airports Authority has green-lit a $27m project to increase operational efficiency at the city’s James Richardson International Airport.

The project aims to build a new ground services equipment building that will allow cargo and ground handling companies to work closer to the international terminal.

With better airside access, the airport is looking to boost operational efficiency on the apron.

ChrisD.ca, a local news site dedicated to developments in the Winnipeg area, stated that CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority, Barry Rempel said: ““WAA continues to redevelop our airport to meet the needs of travellers, airlines and tenants”.

Today’s announcement begins another stage of development for the airport campus, allowing us to make better use of our space to serve current tenants, attract new tenants and to continue to create jobs and drive the economy”.

Cargo handlers will relocate to the building, allowing the space they inhabited to be freed up for redevelopment.
