When covering a news story at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, we ask that media park in the Parkade across from the Terminal Building. As a courtesy, WAA will provide free parking to media for the purposes of covering a news story involving the airport.
During regular working hours (Monday to Friday, between 8am and 5pm), please contact the 24-Hour Media Line, 204.992.2791, and a representative from WAA will provide you with a validated parking pass. Outside of regular work hours, please see the Information Booth staff on the Arrivals Level of the Terminal Building.
Media should refrain from parking curbside on the Departures or Arrivals levels. Vehicles parked at the curb are subject to towing at the owner’s expense.
If you are doing a live feed and need to run cables into the terminal, you must make special arrangements in advance with WAA by calling the 24-Hour Media Line, 204.992.2791. There is very limited space available on the curb, and it will be assigned on a first come first served basis.
Commercial Filming Permission must be obtained from WAA for any on-location commercial filming. Commercial filming includes feature films, documentaries, television series, commercials, still photographs, and general entertainment programs, and may be subject to fees and license requirements. Requests for commercial filming can be sent to WAA’s Supervisor, Real Estate Assets by calling 204.987.7832.
