Ottawa’s Macdonald–Cartier International Airport is due for a 100 Million Dollar renovation.  The decision comes in response to several years of steady growth with the airport expected to surpass the five million passenger milestone by the end of 2018.

Under the five-year multi-phase enhancement programme, a new hotel will be added containing between 150 and 200 rooms and will be connected to the airport by an indoor skywalk. The terminal will expand its food court and retail services and move passenger security screening from the second to the third floor. The airport will also benefit from a new train station as part of Ottawa’s Trillium Line expansion project, with construction set to begin in 2019. Trains are expected to serve passengers from 2021.

Located just 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Macdonald–Cartier International injects $2.2 billion into the Capital’s local economy.

Ottawa is Canada’s capital, in the east of southern Ontario, near the city of Montréal and the U.S. border. Sitting on the Ottawa River, it has at its center Parliament Hill, with grand Victorian architecture and museums such as the National Gallery of Canada, with noted collections of indigenous and other Canadian art. The park-lined Rideau Canal is filled with boats in summer and ice-skaters in winter.
