The Charlottetown Airport Authority (CAA) announced today it has kicked off its Master Plan 2040 planning process and are seeking the public’s help in determining the future priorities for YYG.
The first engagement opportunity for the general public will take place next week at the CAA’s Annual Public Meeting. All are welcome to attend the meeting happening on Tuesday, May 7th at 4:30pm in Gate 3 (International Arrivals Area) of the Air Terminal Building. Our consultant partner on this project, AirBiz, will be on hand to make a presentation on the Master Plan 2040. This will include an opportunity for Q&A, followed by a reception.
The CAA is also asking the public to voice their opinions on key issues via a short survey which can be found at www.flypei.com/masterplan. Upon completion of the survey participants can enter a draw to win a $250 Visa gift card and a YYG t-shirt. The survey will be open until June 7th.
“This Master Plan will serve as a long-term, guiding document which will map out the next 20 years of development for the Charlottetown Airport”, says Doug Newson, CEO of the Charlottetown Airport Authority. “It is our goal to gather as much feedback from our stakeholders, travellers, and the community to produce a plan that will guide our development in a sustainable, flexible and custom-centric manner.”
The public consultation process also includes meetings or interviews with key airport stakeholders, operators, government agencies, neighbourhood community groups, and first nations. Engagement with each of these groups will continue throughout the planning process.
The Master Plan is being completed in partnership with Airbiz, an independent international specialist aviation consultancy and Avia NG, anairport consulting firm specializing in airport planning, design, contract administration and construction phase services.CAA will provide regular project updates throughout the planning process on social media and on a dedicated project webpage that can be accessed at www.flypei.com/masterplan. The final Master Plan will be released in December.
