Iqaluit’s new airport adds art to an already beautiful Nunavut By Sonny Primolo


The spacious interior offers significant exhibition space for Inuit artwork. O


n August 9, 2017, the doors finally opened at the Iqaluit airport. Te new and improved airport adjacent to the old terminal is 9,900 meters squared, making it eight times larger


than the old one. What was once an American military base is now a


place of gathering. Fully equipped with a cafe, store, lounge, increased seating, and, of course, Wi-Fi (which should be improved with the new multi-million dollar investment towards Nunavut’s satellite Internet net- work), Nunavut’s new airport will improve the experi- ence of those who travel in and out of Iqaluit for years to come.


18 • Winter 2018 As part of the $300-million project, additional up-


grades were made to the space with enhancements to the runways, lights, and parking spaces, as well as im- provements to air-side operations safety and efficien- cy. Te LEED certified, energy efficient terminal also produces its own energy through a unique system that burns fuel oil for electricity and uses the by-product as heating for the building. Tis innovative system allows the airport to be less susceptible to power outages in the area. Aircraft are often diverted to Iqaluit airport due to its northern location and the recent upgrades will al- low for improved accessibility to accommodate the ad- ditional load.
