Roadway leading to the airport

TIME FLIES... Feb. 1st 2002 marks 5th anniversary

Celebrations to commemorate the 5th anniversary for the Ottawa Airport Authority's incorporation took place on Monday February 4th.

Airport Authority’s employees and Board of Directors catered to travellers, their airline partners and local community leaders by serving finger foods and cake in the airport’s Atrium.

Since 1997, Ottawa Airport has served over 16 million travellers without government subsidies. Not to mention more than five million residents who have come to greet or say farewell to their friends, colleagues or family. All have witnessed the airport’s transformation from a plain, unconnected facility to a vibrant, welcoming gateway for the community.

The Airport Authority has come a long way in the past 5 years, and it’s only just begun! Inauguration of the future passenger building will take place by spring 2004.
