Let it snow!

Operating the 5th busiest airport in Canada’s north means being prepared to handle extreme and changing weather 24-7.

That is why EIA maintains an entire winter operations program that guides our:

  • Snow removal
  • Ice control
  • Extreme weather communications
  • Personnel and equipment requirements

Who manages winter operations at EIA?

Airside Operations maintain and monitor all runways, taxiways, aprons and airside roads to ensure safe and continuous operation of the airport during winter.

The Airport Operations Centre is the central point of contact for daily operational issues. Airside Operations communicates through the Airport Operations Centre for all winter operations and directly with Nav Canada for access to the airfield.

Airside tenants in Airport City and Villeneuve Airport play a role

Our airside tenants cooperate with Airside Operations to ensure work areas are clear of equipment to allow snow removal.
