t was another exciting summer at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Most nota- bly, our community’s airport helped welcome thousands of visitors from around the world for the FIFA Women’s World Cup this past June. Our airport was full of activity, local ho- tels were packed, restaurants were busy and local attractions enjoyed a boost in attendance


while Winnipeg hosted visiting soccer teams and sports fans. In working with our tourism partners, we were proud to help create a positive first impression of our city and community. As the long days of summer fade away and the first signs of fall are in the air, we start dream- ing about our winter vacations for 2015-16. It’s never too early to start planning. To help you research your next escape, we invite you to join us for the first ever travel expo hosted at the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Mark your calendar for YWG: Your Winter Getaway Starts Here on Saturday, Sept. 26. Come speak with staff from the airport, travel agents and tour operators – all in one convenient place – your community’s airport. It will be a one-stop-shop for all your travel needs.
