Iqaluit Airport Reviews
Iqaluit Airport (IATA: YFB, ICAO: CYFB) serves Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada and is located adjacent to the town. It is operated by the government of Nunavut.
The Iqaluit Airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers. As a result of increased traffic, Nunavut government is planning an overhaul of the airport which is expected to cost between $250 and $300 million. The project will be a public–private partnership with the GN borrowing their half of the cost. The, as yet unnamed, construction company will also operate the airport for 30 years. Upgrades will include building a new terminal, retrofitting the current terminal, expanding parking lots, a second taxiway and apron and repaving the runway. The construction is expected to begin in 2014 and completed by 2017.
Iqaluit Airport serves as a diversion airport on Polar routes.
The Iqaluit Airport hosts scheduled passenger service from Ottawa, Montreal, Rankin Inlet and Kuujjuaq on carriers such as First Air and Canadian North, as well as from smaller communities throughout eastern Nunavut. It is also used as a forward operating base by the CF-18 Hornet.
