Lower Passenger Departure Lounge Expansion

Lower Passenger Departure Lounge Expansion
Total Est. Cost:  $19,400.00K
Timeline:  This project will begin January 2018 with completion anticipated for the Spring of 2020

In response to growth in passenger traffic, up-gauging of aircraft and the need to improve the safe operation of the apron and hold room, work was approved to create a building addition to meet a new state of operations.  The LHRX projects is a 1765m2 addition to the lower passenger departure lounge creating space to accommodate all ground load passenger traffic for the next decade and beyond including the addition of another gate position.

Principle drivers include:  improving operational safety and efficiency for hold room operations; providing sufficient ground load capacity for both seating and serving passengers now and into the future; provide sufficient floorplate to allow additional revenue opportunities with the space.

Design features and amenities will include:

  • Minimizing walking distances to aircraft;
  • covered walkways on aprons;
  • segregated gates with a one-podium, one-door, one-aircraft principle;
  • improved ground equipment storage;
  • new premium washroom facilities including pet relief for service animals and universal;
  • family room;
  • expanded food and beverage and additional retail; and
  • basement.
