Petition to the Minister of Transport

Whereas:
  • The Regina International Airport is an important public service and economic driver for the province of Saskatchewan;
  • The air travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors have suffered among the most significant financial losses and business disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • The Regina International Airport’s air traffic control tower provides high quality jobs at a time of extreme employment uncertainty;
  • Reduced service levels at Regina International Airport would eliminate or severely jeopardize commercial passenger air travel creating significant economic repercussions;
  • Canadian Armed Forces members routinely use the Regina area airspace for high-speed flight training operations;
  • This closure would jeopardize the safety of local airspace, and it is imperative that current safety levels remain intact; and
  • Reduced flight availability would directly lead to travel accessibility issues for hundreds of thousands of Canadians who live in the large geographical area serviced by Regina International Airport.
We, the undersigned, residents of Saskatchewan, call upon the Minister of Transport to:
1. Instruct NAV Canada to immediately cancel their service level review of Regina International Airport’s air traffic control tower; and
2. Explicitly oppose any decision or recommendation that advocates for the closure or reduction of service levels at Regina International Airport’s air traffic control tower.
