Accessibility Upgrades Underway for Williams Lake Regional Airport


The City of Williams Lake is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from Northern Development Initiative Trust for Williams Lake Regional Airport passenger terminal upgrades. Phase 1 is now underway, with the sidewalks and ramp at the entrance to the terminal currently being improved. 


The construction will result in some access challenges. Those requiring assistance are asked to call (250) 305-9676 at least two hours before arriving at the airport so arrangements can be made in advance. 


The accessibility upgrades are expected to be complete by the end of September. The City recognizes that this will present a short-term inconvenience to some travelers and assures the public that assistance is available to ensure a safe arrival and departure. 


For more information, please contact Gary Muraca, Director of Municipal Services, at 250-392-1785, or E-Mail gmuraca@williamslake.ca
