Iqaluit International Airport Improvement Project (Iqaluit, NU)

Iqaluit International Airport Improvement Project

Project Description

The Iqaluit International Airport Improvement project includes a new airport building; expanded aprons for planes to park; new lighting systems; an upgraded runway; and a new combined services building that will house the fire-fighting vehicles, support equipment and the heavy equipment that maintain the runways. The project will mean significant job creation, direct and indirect, as well as training and economic development opportunities for Iqaluit and Nunavut as a whole.

A private partner will be chosen by the Government of Nunavut through a competitive selection process to design, build, finance, operate and maintaining the publicly owned airport for a total concession period of 30 years.
