Travel Tips

A smooth airport experience is easier when you plan ahead. Check out these helpful tips for travelling through YWG.

Arrive Early
Airlines may ask additional questions as part of check-in and/or boarding. Be sure to arrive with plenty of time prior to your scheduled departure. 


Bring a Face Covering
All travellers are asked to arrive at YWG with their face covering or non-medical mask on and to ensure it is covering their mouth and nose in all areas of the terminal.


Physical Distancing
Upon entering the airport, physical distancing is required in all areas. A reminder to stay six feet apart from others you are not travelling with.

Check What's Open
A number of restaurants and establishments are currently closed or are operating with reduced hours. Check out the Dining, Shopping and Service section of our website to plan for your time at the airport and avoid any surprises.

Key Storage Service
YWG offers a free key storage service at the Information Booth for families or friends to self-park a vehicle and leave keys for an arriving traveller to pick up. This service supports best practices for following self-isolation protocols.

Be Aware of Entry Requirements
All non-essential travel is strongly discouraged at this time. If you need to travel outside of the province or country, additional documentation may be required to enter your destination. It is recommended you check with your airline to be sure you understand all requirements for your itinerary. There are also requirements and restrictions in place in Manitoba and at the Canadian border, which may impact your return.
