That’s right, we are ready to grow again!

Thanks to Building Canada Funding and the wonderful growth we have seen over the past few years, the Nanaimo Airport will be undergoing more expansion. We have developed a 20-year Terminal Master Plan to meet the future needs of our region.  Construction of phase 1 of that plan will expand the Boarding Lounge and Security Screening areas.

We hope this does not cause any inconvenience and we thank you for your patience during this expansion. We will be doing everything to make the construction process as smooth as possible. If you have any comments or concerns, we would love to hear from you. Please CLICK HERE to share your thoughts

Here is our plan…

We know it can be crowded and our goal is to get you a bit more “fin” room during peak flight times.

A) Short-Term Passenger Lounge Expansion

Last fall we established a process to open an additional room when the lounge gets too full.  This extra space increases the number of seats, provides standing areas for those that want to stretch their legs before their flight and generally reduce overall congestion in the boarding area during the busiest times.

B) Terminal Building Extension and Enhancements

We are currently in the process of working with the architect team to finalize the building plans and will begin the tender process this fall.  We plan to break ground in February 2018 with phase 1 which will expand the terminal building outwards towards the apron. This will further expand the passenger departure lounge area, extend the baggage room area to allow for more baggage to be processed, and expand the security screening area to allow for checked bags to be screened separately from the passenger screening.
