Welcome to the Grand Forks Airport

The City of Grand Forks owns and operates a municipal airport located on 2nd Street at the most southeasterly corner of the municipality. The airport has terminal facilities, as well as offering aircraft fuel (Jet A and Avgas) for sale. There is a part time attendant to assist your needs, with just a quick phone call.

Airport facilities include a 4,300 foot runway, with two taxiways and aprons. A non-directional beacon (NDB) is located east of Taxiway B. In 1998, the City of Grand Forks undertook an airport upgrading project. The airport is now equipped with 24 airport landing lights providing 24 hour access for MEDIVAC emergency night flights making it the only one of its category (Transport Canada Registered Aerodrome) between Kelowna and Cranbrook.

There are presently numerous private aircraft hangars located on city owned property at the airport, under lease agreements. There is available space for more hangars and the City will entertain new construction while space remains available.
