St John’s International Airport reveals US$200m infrastructure investment plan

st john's airport canada $200m investment passenger terminal worldCanada’s St John’s International Airport is to invest US$200m into a 10-year improvement and expansion plan, effective from this year.

The largest project included within the new plan is the completion of the expanded airport terminal building. The first phase of the expansion began in 2014 and is on schedule to be completed in spring of next year. The end result will be an additional 145,000ft2 incorporated into the three levels of the east end of the existing terminal building.

The second phase will commence from 2018, adding a further 72,000ft2 to the west end of the building upon completion in 2021.

Many projects in the new plan are required to meet safety and security regulatory requirements, including a recent requirement to install a facility to provide security screening for all vehicles entering the airport terminal building apron. There are also a number of necessary lifecycle replacement of facilities required during the decade-period, including the rehabilitation of a number of aprons, taxiways, and the Central De-icing Facility.

Art Cheeseman, chair of the St John’s International Airport Authority’s board of directors, said, “The planned improvements are necessary to meet our regulatory obligations as an Airport Authority to operate an international airport in a safe, secure and effective manner.

"The expansion of our facilities will also enable us to continue to accommodate the increase in passenger traffic at our airport and to welcome the growing number of visitors to our region.”
