THUNDER BAY – Business – With additional seat capacity in the local market, Thunder Bay International Airports Authority (TBIAA) is expecting a busy summer travel season.
TBIAA is requesting that passengers arrive at least 60 minutes prior to departure time to allow for check-in and security screening lines.
“Morning departures between 6:00am and 7:30am will be particularly busy this summer” predicts President & CEO, Ed Schmidtke. “Up to 700 people will be departing Thunder Bay in that 90-minute window. Allowing time for check-in and security screening will assist greatly in getting the flights out on time.”
Schmidtke also recommends that travellers become familiar with the government security rules on permitted and non-permitted items when packing. “Visiting the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority’s website is an excellent way to learn what to pack and what to leave at home,” said Schmidtke.

The Thunder Bay International Airport now opens the doors to the terminal building at 4:00am. to accommodate the early morning departures.
