Winnipeg Airport Reviews

Winnipeg Airport also known as Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (or simply Winnipeg International Airport) (IATA: YWG, ICAO: CYWG) is an international airport in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The Winnipeg Airport is the eighth busiest airport in Canada by passenger traffic, serving 3.4 million passengers in 2011, and the 9th busiest airport by aircraft movements. It is a hub for passenger airlines Calm Air, Kivalliq Air, and Perimeter Airlines and is a focus city for Air Canada Express and WestJet.

Winnipeg Airport’s relatively isolated geographical location in relation to other major population centers makes Winnipeg International Airport the primary international airport for a very large area. As such, it is used as a gateway to areas including the entire province of Manitoba and large parts of neighboring provinces and territories Saskatchewan, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut. Along with flights to major cities across Canada, the USA, the Caribbean, and Mexico, non-stop flights to numerous small remote communities in Northern Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut are served from the Winnipeg Airport.

In 2012, Winnipeg International Airport’s main passenger terminal was selected by the Travel Channel as one of the most iconic airport terminal buildings in the world.
