New Project: Charlottetown Airport - A Dynamic Future For PEI
Charlottetown Airport, located in the heart of Prince Edward Island, Canada, carries a rich aviation heritage dating back to 1932 and continues to meet the demands of travellers. Originally named Sherwood Airport, it embarked on its journey as a humble grass airstrip catering to small aircraft. Over the decades, the airport has evolved significantly, becoming a pivotal player in the province's transportation network.
In 1940, the Royal Canadian Air Force utilized Charlottetown Airport during World War II, marking a significant chapter in its history. The year 1947 witnessed a transformative milestone as the airport received its first paved runway, laying the foundation for further growth. The latter half of the 20th century saw the airport expanding its infrastructure to welcome larger commercial planes and enhance passenger facilities.
Charlottetown Airport's expansion is not just a construction project; it's a journey towards shaping the future of transportation in Prince Edward Island. EllisDon is honoured to secure the bid for this project and aims to accommodate the increase in demand for domestic and international travellers.
Today, Charlottetown Airport stands as a modern regional airport, seamlessly connecting the picturesque island to various domestic and international destinations. Its strategic location and state-of-the-art facilities make it a vital gateway to Prince Edward Island, playing a crucial role in the province's transportation network. Together, we soar to new heights!
