Notice more planes overhead? Runway construction is causing a temporary change to the flight approach with the project expected to be completed in October.

The runway rehabilitation project is an intensive construction project that needs to occur approximately every 25 years. This necessary project will keep the Saskatoon Airport available for use by our partners and our community for years to come.

Project fun facts:

  • 4,765 linear metres of drainage pipe will be installed, which is comparable of 53 football fields
  • Over 150,000 m2 of runway will be milled, which is equivalent to 550 standard tennis courts
  • 125 LED lights will be installed on the runway edge, taxiways, and intersection area
