AMEN!

Edmonton has an almost identical twin of the old terminal which is now at risk of losing its tower and removing what i classify as the 'identifiable silhouette' of YEG.

Sad really that they cannot respect the old terminal, add on a modern wing, and then bind them together.

Just checked AC's timetable and there are direct flights to Montreal and Quebec City. Edmonton and Moncton had direct flights too but have just been discontinued. Note that these are direct flights, not non stop flights. The plan makes a stop either Toronto or Ottawa first.

Lufthansa to Offer Year-Round, Nonstop Service From Montreal to Munich

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2010) - Announced today, Lufthansa now offers year-round direct Montreal-Munich service beginning October 2010. Demand for year-round access to this important European hub from Montreal has led to the expansion of Lufthansa's previous seasonal (summer) service.

Lufthansa will operate five flights a week – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday – in the winter season, and daily flights in the summer. Flight LH 475 will depart Montreal at 8:20 pm arriving in Munich the next day at 9:55 am local time. Flight LH 474 will depart Munich at 3:40 pm with arrival in Montreal at 6:30 pm. The flights will operate with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 221 seats (8 in First Class, 48 in Business Class and 165 in Economy Class).

"Lufthansa is the only airline offering nonstop service between Montreal and the Bavarian capital, with convenient connections to 117 onward destinations in 44 countries. This year alone, six new cities were added to the vast Munich network including Bursa/Turkey, Riyadh/Saudi Arabia, Rostock/Germany, Tallinn/Estonia, Taschkent/Uzbekistan and Zadar/Croatia," said Lars Koeplin, newly appointed regional director for Lufthansa in Canada.

The expanded schedule complements the nonstop, year-round Montreal-Frankfurt code share service available via Air Canada, providing travellers in eastern Canada with direct access to two global hubs. Together, they offer Canadian travellers connections to more than 200 destinations in 82 European, Middle East, African and Asian countries.

To kick-off the expanded service, Lufthansa is offering discounted fares to 31 cities in Europe, starting at CAD 250 to Munich (one-way, based on a roundtrip purchase, excluding taxes and fees). The fall Europe promotion is available for sale until October 13, 2010. Check lufthansa.com for details or your nearest travel agent.

I have mixed feelings about Winnipeg's old terminal..

It's a great example of modernism, but it was city run for so many years and the facility was never really kept up.

The clean vistas that were a hallmark of its design have since been filled with all sorts of promotional crap like vending machines, car raffles, various kiosks, etc.

Sadly, as much as I like our new terminal it does sort of look like every other airport built in the last 10 years.

I was just in Winnipeg over the weekend, I guess that was the last time I'll use the old terminal. By this time next year when I next travel there on business I'll be in the new terminal.

The expansion is MASSIVE and hard to grasp from these pictures, but it literally doubles the size of our airport.

Wow!

That Winnipeg airport expansion looks awesome! How many passengers a year is it aiming to accomodate now? 5 million? 6 million?

I believe it's something like that. This new terminal building was constructed to add another Phase or two, which will add millions more in capacity for future growth.

This new terminal is also designed to accommodate wide body aircraft...something the current terminal I believe does not accommodate.

They want direct flights to Europe, so no more connecting flights for us

The Winnipeg terminal looks great and Saskatoon looks promising! Do most airports in Canada put the arrivals and departures on top of eachother like seen in those Winnipeg photos? We have it in Ottawa (built 2003) and it makes it so much easier to pick up/drop off people at the airport. Who was the first? The photo below shows the arrivals on the ground level with the departures drop off area on the structure above. The skybridge connects the terminal (right) with the parkade (left).



Here are a couple of shots of YOW's parkade expansion from December. I didn't realize there was that much of a demand for parking (I can always find a spot when needed), but I guess they are preparing for the future.





Rendering (the part closest to the bottom of the photo is the expansion):
