Media Release from Thunder Bay International Airport Authority - March 1, 2018 

Thunder Bay Airport experiencing unprecedented demand for parking spaces

During the busy Spring Break period the Airport Authority is urging customers flying out on winter vacation to arrange to be dropped off versus parking at the airport.

“Parking stalls are always at a premium during this busy time of year. Being dropped off at the airport by a friend or relative will give our customers close proximity to the Air Terminal Building. Upon return, your ride can wait in the “Cell Phone” waiting lane free of charge,” noted President & Chief Executive Officer Ed Schmidtke.

Parking challenges are expected to continue through the March Break vacation season and return to normal thereafter.

The Airport Authority appreciates the cooperation of our customers
