"Not enough funds" for a railway crossing according to whom? Common sense suggests that Wellington doesn't connect to the airport since it is a local collector that ends before it reaches downtown. The railway crossing item seems highly speculative.
Agreed. This appears to be completely baseless. At the very least some citation should be given in support of this contention. I do not think it is unreasonable to give this a yank. --184.108.40.206 03:15, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
New airport name - new article title?
Well, looks like this airport has been renamed from "Winnipeg International Airport" to "Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport", it seems reasonable that we should change the name of the article to reflect that. Does anyone have any objections? --Fudoreaper 15:15, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
I live in Winnipeg. When I go to pick some one up from the airport, I simply say "I'm going to the airport". James Armstrong, or International, or any other name just doesn't roll off the tongue. Toronto's "Pearson" actually means something. Montreal's "Trudeau" means something. "Richardson" means nothing, at least to me. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RadiantRay (talk • contribs) 02:29, 18 February 2007 (UTC).
- It's a new name. I'm still used to "Winnipeg International Airport" as the new name, but it is no longer correct, and no longer used at the airport, on the radio and in the newspapers.
- But shouldn't the article be at Richardson International Airport, per Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names)? I have never heard the full name used. —Michael Z. 2007-03-08 00:55 Z
- In all the papers I've read, it is referenced as Richardson International (Formerly Winnipeg Intl) 220.127.116.11 01:47, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
- I work in the Winnipeg airport complex and there is no consensus on the new name which is the exact reason why this article should stay as is, in terms of the name, even though it is a cumbersome, formal name. When the new terminal is completed in 2009, a familiar name will emerge; my bet is on the "Richardson International" but that determination is still some time to come. Bzuk 13:24, 7 April 2007 (UTC).
Northwest to Detroit ?
Accidents and Incidents
Is it really necessary to indicate that the unruly passenger was Irish? rb26dett um yes it is, this is winnipeg we must know everything! winnipeg for life! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Random05 (talk • contribs) 22:03, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
- I see no reason to mention the nationality of the passenger. I will remove it. E James (talk) 21:08, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Is the part referring the new airport opening up YWG to 747/777 reference for the terminal being able to handle them? Winnipeg can definately land them and take them off, as we have had 747s and 777s divert to winnipeg. I am not sure however if gates can handle them or not. 18.104.22.168 04:32, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Link reference #12 under airport development was pointing to www.winnipeginlandport.ca which is not an authoritative source for Centre Port according to the government of Manitoba []. The correct link is []Bludder204 (talk) 21:17, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Closure of Runway 07/25?
Runway 07/25 is still open. The runway won't be closed until the new terminal building is complete. At that point the runway is slated to be converted into a taxiway.
The most recent NOTAM does not mention any runway closures.

- The reason that you won't see a NOTAM is because the runway was closed over a year ago and removed from the Canada Flight Supplement, so no NOTAM required. However, that doesn't mean that aircraft are not using it. Depending on weather/runway conditions we sometimes have STOL aircraft, like Twin Otters, landing on the taxiway as it's 90 degrees to the runway. Also, if you look at a sat image it shows 5 X'x starting from the 25 end, indicating that the runway is closed. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 17:26, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Air Transat no longer flies to Winnipeg per their website (http://www.airtransat.ca/en/Destinations/Map.aspx). Have removed this carrier from the list.22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:49, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
- Doesn't say that. Winnipeg is still on the list, I guess you didn't realize that. Njaohnt (talk) 00:46, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
