Winter Travel Tips

If you’re planning on swapping white snow for white sand this winter, follow these travel tips to ensure you start your sun destination trip on the right foot!

If you’re itching to beat the cold but don’t know where to go, check out our new destination website The site has a host of resources, not least a route map with information on all of the destinations served from Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, along with a list of activities, flight times and links to each airline.

Once you’ve booked your plane tickets, it’s time to pack. CATSA’s website has a wonderful online site with useful travel advice for passengers. Their site also has a search menu that allows you to double-check what you can bring in your carry-on and checked baggage.

Be mindful that the winter season is a busy time of year for travel, especially around the holidays. Plan to arrive early and check CATSA’s security wait times online before heading to the airport.

Parking at the airport is even more convenient than it was before! You can book your parking ahead of time with our new online parking reservation system. Choose among several parking options, including the Economy Lot or the Terminal Parkade.

You can also book parking with Valet & Away - imagine returning from your trip to a warm car waiting for your on the Arrivals Level curb, steps from the Terminal Building!

If you didn’t have time to stop at the bank to pick up the currency of the country you’re visiting, there are three International Currency Exchange kiosks located at the airport where you can exchange funds.

We hope you have a wonderful winter getaway!
