International Airport Review
The Government of Canada has announced future investments into Saint John Airport, to ensure and upkeep the safety of all passengers, employees, and air services at the airport.
Through Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Programme (ACAP), the Government of Canada will provide the airport with more than $1.8 million to purchase critical safety equipment including:
- An aircraft rescue firefighting vehicle
- A shelter to house and protect the firefighting vehicle
- A snow blower to keep airside surfaces clear, and
- A runway surface friction tester.
This equipment will help maintain safe airport operations for aircraft, passengers, crews, and airport workers.
This funding is in addition to the more than $500,000 in Airports Capital Assistance Programme funding provided to the airport in May 2021, to support the rehabilitation of airside apron floodlighting and electrical constant current regulators.
