Winnipeg Airport Mini Guide
What Should I Know About Winnipeg Airport?
Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport or Winnipeg Airport as it is more reasonably known is the main airport serving the city of Winnipeg in Canada's Manitoba region and the only international airport in the province. The airport is located approximately eight kilometres from the centre of Winnipeg city.
By bus the connections are good. You will need to take the number 15 Winnipeg transit bus which runs regularly (every 20 to 30 minutes) and stops at most of the Winnipeg city hotels. There are a number of taxi and limousine services available both to and from the airport and a lot of hotels in the city provide free shuttle bus services. When driving, the route to the airport is well signposted from all approaches and very easy to find when travelling from Winnipeg city. To plan your driving route check the airports official website which has a route planner that is free of charge to use.
Shopping At The Airport
The airport at Winnipeg in conjunction with the Folk Arts Council and other local culture programs have developed the Showcase Manitoba Store. It carries an exclusive range of clothing and event related goods and all of the proceeds go directly to the Winnipeg local cultural groups. The store also provides a good range of unique gift items.
For the latest page turners a visit to the Virgin Books and Music store is in order and if you plan to meet someone special at the airport you can pick up a dozen roses at the Welcome Flowers florists. If you’re travelling with children and they get tired of shopping there is an excellent play area located on the ground floor of the terminal.
Got an Appetite?
You won’t go hungry in Winnipeg International Airport, while definitely not a gourmet paradise there are a good range of menus available from the different outlets. For your morning (and all day) coffee, head to the Second Cup Coffee Co. the largest speciality coffee chain in Canada and breathe deep the delicious aroma as they grind the beans for your cuppa.
