The Regina International Airport is asking the public how the airport can fly into the future with new upgrades.
The airport held a public forum Thursday to discuss possible changes that could be made as a part of their revision of their 20-year plan.
Ken Waschuk, chair of the board and acting CEO of the Regina Airport Authority, said they make these revisions.
“It’s not something that we have to stick to letter by letter but it’s a general outline of where we’re going in the next 20 years,” Waschuk said.
Some of the improvements he could see being made are having a larger terminal building with more retail, more food services and an improved atmosphere.
“We work hard at that, making our customer experience as good as we can.”
Part of the plan is to deal with the amount of growth the airport has been seeing.
Waschuk said growth has been steady for the past couple of years but projections have them growing by about three per cent per year.
“(The plan) reacts to the growth and meets the demands that those customers would expect.”
One of the things Waschuk would like to see improved is the amount of time it takes to screen customers, but he did admit that is out of his hands.
“Most of that is beyond our control, that’s run by (The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority).”
This is the second of two public forums being held by the airport, with the first occurring this past June.
The third will be held in December.
