Airport Master Plan

Airport Master Plan Update 2015-2035

St. John’s International Airport serves as the premier gateway to Newfoundland and Labrador and plays a significant role in facilitating economic growth and development in the region. The primary goal of the Airport Master Plan is to provide a framework to guide the development of the Airport over a 20-year planning horizon and ensure that future improvements are undertaken in a responsible manner with due regard for operational efficiency, safety, financial viability and the environmental compliance. The update  is a comprehensive update of the 2002 Airport Master Plan. Included, as part of this Master Plan, is an update to the Airport’s 2001 Land Use Plan.

To meet the long-term activity demands, this Airport Master Plan identifies a number of potential infrastructure improvements. The Airport Master Plan is not a commitment on the part of the St. John’s International Airport Authority to undertake any of these improvements. The improvements identified in this Master Plan would be subject to a strong business case and are not tied to an explicit timeframe.

A key component of the Airport Master Plan is an updated Airport Land Use Plan. The purpose of the Land Use Plan is to provide a vision that allows for the rational development of the Airport to proceed while protecting its long term operational and commercial viability.
