Saint John Airport (IATA: YSJICAO: CYSJ) is an airport located 8 nautical miles (15 km; 9.2 mi) east northeast of the central business district of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The airport is wholly within the boundaries of the City of Saint John. In 2012, the terminal handled 216,000 passengers.[5]


Saint John Airport was officially opened on 8 January 1952, although several aircraft — including at least one scheduled flight — had already landed at the airport by then. The airport is classified as an airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). CBSA officers at this currently can handle aircraft with no more than 120 passengers.[1] Part of the National Airports System, it is owned by Transport Canada and operated by Saint John Airport Inc.
