Winnipeg Launches New Airport


Canada’s newest airport is also the greenest. The James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, located in Winnipeg, officially welcomed its first passengers at the end of October. World-class design, contemporary restaurant and shopping options, as well as a host of modern travelling conveniences, make the new terminal an impressive welcome to the prairie province.

Floor-to-ceiling glass panes on the second-storey departure level provide a nearly 360-degree view of Manitoba’s signature skies and Winnipeg’s skyline. Transparent boarding bridges mean natural light embraces jetlagged and weary travellers soon after they step off the airplane. A constellation of 55 skylights in the arrival area is the ‘wow factor’ design feature all travellers are drawn to. All in all, it’s a noticeable departure from the modernist architectural style of the old terminal built in 1964.

Master architect of the new terminal was Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. They are the creative visionaries behind iconic international landmarks such as the Petronas Towers in Malaysia and International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.
