WE’RE MAKING IMPROVEMENTS TO SERVE YOU BETTER
From now until December 2019, YSJ is making improvements to serve you better. Two main construction projects are underway: an ‘Exterior Beautification Project’ and an ‘Airfield Modernization Project’. For more information on these construction projects please read below. We apologize for any inconvenience as we work to improve your Saint John Airport.
Exterior Beautification Project
Construction Begins: May 2018
Estimated Completion: October 2018
Improvements to the exterior of the Saint John Airport are currently underway in the parking lot areas. Temporary parking has been created during construction. Visitors are encouraged to park in Long Term Lot #2 (on the left when pulling into the airport). Please watch for signs directing you to available parking.
Airfield Modernization Project
Planning & Design: Spring / Summer 2018
Construction Begins: August 2018
Estimated Completion: December 2019
The Saint John Airport’s airfield will be completely rehabilitated and modernized, thanks to a $10 million investment made by Transport Canada and $4 million by the Government of New Brunswick plus more than $6 million committed by the Saint John Airport Inc. for a total project cost of $20.4 million.
This investment will enable us to make safety-related improvements that ensure we comply with the latest airport design standards and lessen the cost of annual routine maintenance going forward. Once completed, these critical infrastructure improvements will allow us to realize our passenger growth goals and remain a key economic driver for the region.
The Airfield Modernization Project comprises the complete rehabilitation of the airport’s two runways and the addition of centreline lighting on the primary runway to improve accessibility for arriving and departing aircraft.
Construction work begins August 2018 on the shorter runway and ends November 2018. Construction on the primary runway begins May 2019 and is expected to be completed by December 2019.
