Ever wonder how airplanes pick their route in the sky?

The public was invited today to learn more about the flight paths at YLW and the benefits of the new changes coming our way. Staff from Nav Canada, WestJet and YLW were on hand to identify routes in relation to where you live, explain the latest changes and how they will benefit residents in the area.

A public information session is taking place at the airport terminal until 3 p.m. This information session is being held  in conjunction with the airport’s annual travel show. Parking is free in the Long-Term lot. Visitors are asked to bring in the parking voucher to be validated at the event.

Those attending the event have the opportunity to enter to win tickets for two to Europe with Air Canada or a Northern adventure to Whitehorse from Air North, Yukon’s Airline.

Prize ballots will be available at the draw table: $5 for one, $10 for three and $20 for six chances to win. The draw for all prizes awarded by YLW will be made today at 3 p.m.  You do not need to be at the airport at the time of the draw. The airport will notify all winners by telephone and then post on its Facebook page.

Those who enter the draw in turn give back to the community, with all proceeds from this event being donated to the local charity East Meets West Orphan’s Foundation (ww.eastmeetswestorphansfoundation.org/).
