Public Notice: Runway 13/31 Rehabilitation at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport

WINNIPEG, Manitoba – April 17, 2019 – Winnipeg Richardson International Airport is committed to serving the community by providing excellent airport facilities. As part of this commitment, we will initiate a number of enhancement and construction projects over the summer, to be completed by the fall of 2019.

During rehabilitation all flights will be using Runway 18/36, the airport’s other runway. As a result, some communities will see a change to overhead air traffic.

The northwest-southeast Runway 13/31 flight path will see a temporary decrease in overhead air traffic. This affects:

Fort Garry-Riverview
Fort Richmond
Fort Rouge (west)
Fort Whyte (northeast)
River Heights
Seine River
St. François-Xavier
St. James (east)
St. Vital
Tuxedo (east)
Wolseley (west)

The north-south Runway 18/36 flight path will see a temporary increase in overhead air traffic. This affects:

Assiniboia (east)
Kirkfield Park (east)
The Maples (west)
Roblin Park (east)
Rosser (east)
St. James (west)
Tuxedo (west)
Tyndall Park (west)

The airport will continue normal operations and scheduled flights with no reduction in service as a result of this project. We will continue implementing noise abatement procedures for departure and arrival altitudes, preferred runway end use, nighttime operating restrictions and more in order to reduce impacts.
