Edmonton – At a special meeting of the Board of Directors held yesterday, Edmonton Airports undertook to work with stakeholders including the Province of Alberta, City of Edmonton, representatives of Northern Alberta, and economic development, business and industry organizations through an Air Services/City Centre Airport Consultation Group. As a gesture of good faith, while the Consultation Group is engaged Edmonton Airports will postpone implementation of policy changes to Edmonton City Centre Airport announced on November 18, 2003.

Recognizing that all parties share a commitment to advance economic development in the region, Edmonton Airports will work with this Consultation Group to expeditiously:

• Build common understanding of the issues
• Identify key elements of solutions

Margaret Bateman, Vice Chair of Edmonton Airports Board of Directors, has been appointed to lead this process. Membership of the Consultation Group will be finalized shortly.
