Flin Flon is Among the Northern Airports Receiving Federal Government Funding.


Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Indigenous Services Dan Vandal on behalf of Transport Minister Marc Garneau has announced Government of Canada investments for safety improvements at five Manitoba airports.  Flin Flon Airport is receiving just under 283 thousand dollars for the purchase of a loader and attachments which will assist with the removal of snow from runways, taxiways and the apron while the Brochet Airport, Gods River Airport, Island Lake Airport and the Little Grand Rapids Airport are each receiving 36 thousand dollars to replace a towed multi-wheeled compactor for use on a gravel runway.  The funding comes from Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program


Vandal states this investment will help ensure continued safe and reliable airport operations for northern Manitobans many of whom depend on their local airports not only for personal travel and community resupply but also for access to routine and emergency medical care in larger centers.
