British Columbia airport hopes fuel, logistics park attract cargo

In addition to a warehouse that opened in 2012, the airport will break ground in April 2014 for a new perishables warehouse cross-dock facility. The airport also opened up 600 acres of land to airport-related development.

Gibson says time will tell if these improvements result in increased cargo business for Prince George Airport.

“We keep on moving along,” Al Ridgway, director of cargo business development, says. “It’s a very diversified and growth-oriented market for us right now.”

In November, Prince George Airport set up fuel tanks, allowing for any carrier or refiner to buy fuel brought in by rail.
