The Canadian government will provide Saskatoon John G Diefenbaker International Airport with more than C$1.7m (US$1.3m) from the Airport Critical Infrastructure Program, to recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

With this funding, the airport intends to expand one of its aprons to create additional space for the movement of larger aircraft. The funding will also be used to improve flight scheduling and connection times between flights for passengers, as well as establishing dedicated corridors to enable physical distancing at the airport.

This funding is in addition to the C$10.9m (US$8.4m) provided under the program in August 2021 for the rehabilitation of the primary runway and apron pavement surfaces, the installation of new LED runway edge lights and the replacement of storm drains.

The Canadian government also provided the airport with C$2.8m (US$2.1m) from Transport Canada’s Airport Relief Fund to help it maintain continued airport operations and essential air services for residents and workers in Saskatoon and surrounding communities.
