Ottawa/Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Ottawa
Ottawa International Airport or Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, serves Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is named for Sir John A. Macdonald and George-Etienne Cartier. Located 5.5 nautical miles (10 km) south of the city centre, it is the 6th busiest airport in Canada by passenger traffic, and the 8th busiest by aircraft movements. It handled 3.7 million passengers in 2005. The airport underwent an expansion in 2003, with the opening of a new terminal building. The airport's board of directors approved a further expansion of the airport's passenger terminal on April 4, 2006. The new addition will add over 7,000 square metres of space and will have twelve new gates and seven jetways. The old terminal, which is still used during peak periods, will be torn down once the new addition is ready. The airport hopes that the new addition will be completed in 2008.
