Canada gets ready to welcome new Arctic hub airport

Published on : Thursday, May 11, 2017

IqaluitThis winter, Iqaluit that is the main hub of the region of Arctic Canada is all set to welcome an ideal airport experience outside Iceland.

Work has commenced on full swing at Iqaluit win the aim of creating a brand new international terminal that is going to be completed during the brief sub-Arctic summer. The new terminal is at least eight times bigger than the present terminal and would permit international arrivals in large numbers for the very first time.

Some of the workers have been procured from various parts of North America.

However, Bouygues Batiment International is also training a few people from the Inuit community for completing this massive project. Besides, this project might also usher in benefits to the Canadian north by drawing tourists to the region.

It takes about six hours to fly from the UK and it is certainly within the capabilities of the new Boeing 737 MAX.

As of now, one can only approach the Iqaluit via a domestic flight from southern Canada. The fares are really exorbitant as well. A flight to Iqaluit from Ottawa consumes three hours. But then, a return trip at present is priced around £1,300.

The shortest air route from Heathrow to San Francisco goes directly overhead Iqaluit that is the midway point on the trip.
Several other links from the key Continental hubs of Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam pass quite close by. Iqaluit might prove to be a rewarding northern air network and serve as a crucial gateway to Canada offering a superior connectivity for Canadians.
