Aurora Sky – News release
Aurora Cannabis Inc. is now under construction of its 800,000 square foot cannabis production facility, Aurora Sky, at the Edmonton International Airport (EIA). Aurora has chosen EIA for many competitive advantages, including access to abundant and reliable low-cost power, as well as unparalleled proximity to infrastructure and essential services, such as gas, water, sewage, public transportation, courier services, and international customs for clearing supplies and equipment. Furthermore, the location facilitates capitalizing on opportunities for future export of product and genetics to legally authorized jurisdictions around the world.
From an air services perspective, Aurora’s new facility will benefit from high-quality services available on site at EIA, including bonded warehousing, ground transportation access and air cargo connections across the country.
