Revelstoke Airport, (IATA: YRVICAO: CYRV), is located 1.7 nautical miles (3.1 km; 2.0 mi) south southeast of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada.

Expansion plan[edit]

On December 7, 2011, the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District (CRSD) announced an expansion plan for the airport. While some parts of the plan are still preliminary and tentatively scheduled to take place over the course of the next few years, such as the extension of the runway, some other improvements in the Revelstoke Airport expansion include the upgrading of the terminal building and improving the airport's navigational systems.

If the expansion of the airport were to take place, the projected cost would be about $765,000. $365,000 would come from the city's Resort Municipality Initiative funding, with the other $400,000 coming from the CSRD, although the latter funds would require the approval from the CSRD board.

The plan is to attract regular charters to bring tourists to Revelstoke and eventually develop the airport to implement regular commercial flights from other cities.[3]
