For the second time in three years the Regina International Airport has been recognized internationally.
YQR received the Routes Americas 2017 Marketing Award, in the under 4 million passengers airports category.
The winning airport is selected by different airlines.
Dick Graham, president and CEO of the Regina Airport Authority, said receiving this award will help in reaching YQR’s goal of more direct international flights out of Regina.
“(This award) is extremely important,” explained Graham. “When we’re recognized as the strongest airport marketing team — in North and South American combined — it goes a long way to open doors with other aiports and other airlines.”
Graham added that the Authority has always made a point to maintain strong relationships between YQR and the airlines that operate out of it.
He said working towards adding more direct international flights to the U.S. out of YQR is on the Authority’s to-do list.
