Situated on top of one of the largest oil reserves in the world, Fort McMurray is a region defined by growth and development. Since 2000, its population has grown by 125% and is expected to double again over the next two decades. Increased labour demands attract workers from across Canada and all over the globe – adding to the region’s numbers. To accommodate the constant influx of people and goods, Fort McMurray International Airport (YMM) opened a new terminal on June 9, 2014.
YYM passengers can enjoy many amenities at the new terminal including free high-speed Wi-Fi, electrical and USB outlets in every seat, a children’s play area and 16 food and beverage outlets including full service restaurants like Earl’s Kitchen and Bar and Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria.
Built for the northern climate and environmental sustainability, the new terminal project was one of eleven winners of the 2013 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence for embodying qualities of innovation and overall design excellence. The new terminal features bold and beautiful artwork from selected artists in Fort McMurray and Western Canada, large open spaces, and the largest mass exposed timber ceiling in North America.
