Airport


Ottawa Macdonald Cartier International Airport
– Ottawa/Macdonald-Cartier International Airport or Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada is named after Sirs John A. Macdonald and George-Etienne Cartier. Located in Riverside South, 5.5 NM (10.2 km; 6.3 mi) south of downtown Ottawa, it is Canada's 6th busiest airport by airline passenger traffic and by aircraft movements, with 4,473,894 passengers and 172,053 aircraft movements in 2010. It is also an Air Canada Jazz and Air Canada focus city and the home base for First Air.
The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency
While Ottawa's airport serves all major North American airlines and has flights to Europe, the Caribbean and many cities to the United States, Ottawa is the largest metropolitan area of Canada which does not serve as a hub for any airline. Ottawa International Airport is one of eight Canadian airports that have United States border pre-clearance facilities.
Terminals –
At the turn of the millennium, the Ottawa Airport Authority announced plans to build a second, adjacent terminal to meet the demands of increased traffic. The new terminal was built ahead of schedule and opened on October 12, 2003. The new terminal building now handles all airline passenger traffic. A section of the 1960 terminal, which was connected to the new terminal by an enclosed bridge, was still used at peak times of the day when extra gate space is needed, and it also handled most domestic prop flights.
The airport's board of directors approved a further expansion of the airport's passenger terminal on April 4, 2006. The extension of the new terminal was built in phases. Phase II, the next phase of the expansion program opened March 13, 2008. This new addition contains over 7,000 m2 of space and adds an additional twelve gates and seven jet ways. The old 1960 terminal has been demolished and by the end of 2008, its former location was paved over to provide room for more gates and jet ways.

Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport
– Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport is located 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) northeast of Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. It has a single, 6,000 × 150 ft (1,829 × 46 m) asphalt runway oriented east-west.
The airport is equipped with Canada Customs facilities, using the CANPASS system, for aircraft coming from outside Canada, a car rental counter and a restaurant. Various past attempts to provide regularly scheduled flights from Gatineau's airport had been unsuccessful. Most residents of Gatineau used the nearby Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, or travel to Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal. Since September 2003, Air Express has been operating regularly scheduled direct flights from Gatineau Airport to Quebec City. The airport was inaugurated in 1978 and transferred to the City of Gatineau in 1991. In 2009, it was the third busiest airport in Canada in terms of aircraft movements, without a control tower.

Carp Airport
– Ottawa/Carp Airport or Carp Airport, is located 1.2 NM south of Carp, Ontario, Canada, a small village that is now part of Ottawa. Carp is the only airport in the Ottawa area where private hangar space is readily available, so it is a popular home base for local general aviation pilots
The airport had been owned by the City of Ottawa until 2005 but is being transferred to a private company, West Capital Developments, who plan to build an airport community and industrial park at the airport.
Carp was originally a military airfield, and participated in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during World War II. The outline of the characteristic three-runway triangle is still visible in the shape of the taxiways, but one of the runways has disappeared, and another is gravel-covered and restricted to Visual Flight Rules (VFR) only. Near the airport is the largest of the Canadian Cold War Diefenbunkers, a giant long-term fallout shelter for government and military officials that now serves as a museum.
