Maguire set to make airport announcement

It sounds like the federal government is ready for boarding at the Brandon airport.

Brandon-Souris Conservative MP Larry Maguire will be at the airport this afternoon, where he will make an announcement about the city’s plans to redevelop and expand the aging facility.

Although details won't be released until today’s announcement, Maguire told the Sun earlier this month that he was hoping for federal funds to flow by fall.

The airport terminal redevelopment is a nearly $9-million project, with the city and the province having already agreed to pay one-third of the cost each.

The project would expand the McGill Field airport terminal building to three times its current size, to better accommodate and encourage the daily air service currently provided by WestJet, as well as boost the chances for accommodating future flight expansion.

Included in the plans are a dedicated check-in area, spacious boarding lounge, additional space for security screening, separate arrivals area, new baggage carousel and improved network connectivity via fibre-optic installation.

Announcement updates will be posted to brandonsun.com, and will be included in tomorrow’s paper.
