Pick-up and drop-off areas
Accessible pick-up and drop-off areas are located along the median on Arrivals Level 1 and curbside on Departures Level 2 of the terminal. The designated spots are indicated by the International Symbol of Access.
These are loading zones only and no waiting is permitted. To help keep the designated spots available, please use them for quick drop-offs and pick-ups only.
Wheelchair and baggage assistance is available on demand by calling 204-987-9798. A representative will meet you at the curb on the Departures Level and assist you to the airline check-in counter. Assistance from the Arrivals Hall to the curbside pick-up area can also be requested through the phone number provided above.
All YWG parking lots offer accessible stalls for use by permit holders.
The closest accessible parking to the terminal is located in the Parkade on Level 3. From there, a covered walkway leads to Departures Level 2 of the terminal. This is the only direct connection to the airline check-in area.
The Economy Lot provides the nearest low-price parking. The surface lot is located behind the Parkade, a further distance from the terminal.
