Timmins airport receives runway repaving 
August 28, 2020 - The Timmins Victor M. Power Airport is currently receiving some runway repaving, providing operational longevity and a thicker landing surface for heavier aircraft.

While work has been ongoing with minimal disruption, in order to complete the runway, the intersection of both runways will require closure for grinding, asphalt removal regrading and paving.

“This is a complicated areas with the meeting of two runways and a taxiway,” explained Airport Manager Dave Dayment. “We understand this is an inconvenience but the current runway condition indicated near end of life. We will be in fine shape for the next 25 years now.”

Work on the intersection is scheduled for September 8-12, and the airport will be closed for all fixed-wing aircraft during this period. Attempts have been made to reach out to as many customers and tenants as possible with respect to runway rehabilitation work.

Airlines currently offering commercial flights out of Timmins will not be booking travel to or from the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport during those days.
