These airport upgrades are part of a 10-year strategy to improve and expand its facilities to accommodate projected increases in travellers and attract new routes and carriers. Included are some 700 metres of additional secure corridors, high-speed baggage systems, upgrades to the original 1968 Domestic Terminal Building, runway safety enhancements, and upgrades to airport roads, bridges, and dykes. In order to help finance the upgrades, a $5 increase in the Airport Improvement Fee has been added for passengers departing to destinations outside of British Columbia or the Yukon. Construction on the Domestic Terminal’s A and B Piers is underway, and completion of the upgrades is estimated for 2022.
