Movements from Statistics Canada
Swift Current Airport (IATA: YYN, ICAO: CYYN) is located 4 nautical miles (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) east of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada. This airport had scheduled service throughout the 1950s and '60s. At the moment (2006), it has no scheduled service, but plans for expansion have recently been accepted. In its current state, the largest aircraft it could accommodate would be a Boeing 737, but it would not be a comfortable fit. It would be possible in an emergency, but not the most common plan.
From 1940 to 1944, the airport served as a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base for pilots who served with the Royal Air Force. In March 1996, the City of Swift Current took over operations from Transport Canada and contracted out airport services until mid-2011. The City of Swift Current assumed management of the airport from this point forward.
Swift Current Airport has the following services: Cardlock fuel pumps (accepting VISA & MasterCard) dispensing 100LL gasoline & Jet A-1 turbo fuel, 24-hr Pilot's Lounge with telephone & washroom, Approved Maintenance Organization (Craft Aviation), parking & tie-downs.
