The Government of Canada has committed $12.7 million to help speed up Winnipeg Richardson International Airport’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Almost $7 million of the investment, announced by the Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra, on July 27, will be used to fund critical infrastructure improvements including the rehabilitation of taxiways, other airfield surfaces and access roads. These projects will help the airport continue to provide safe and reliable air services while also contributing to the community’s economy.

The remainder of the money will come from Transport Canada’s Airport Relief Fund to allow YWG to maintain airport operations and rebuild the region’s connectivity.
