Along with Transport Canada’s list of COVID-19 health measures, the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport continues to enforce a passenger only protocol inside the airport terminal.

Only airline passengers or authorized persons such as an escort or caregiver are allowed inside the airport terminal. Anyone dropping off or picking up a passenger are asked to remain outside the terminal building. To avoid congestion in front of the terminal and vehicles parked in the airport’s designated fire route, the parking lot has a grace period of one hour at no charge.

The passenger only protocol has been put in place to protect the safety of passengers and airport staff as we continue to address the pandemic. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.
