Fredericton’s airport has been operating since 1951, and expanded in the early 1960s and again in the mid-1980s. In 2001, the airport was privatized and turned over to the Greater Fredericton Airport Authority. The Fredericton Airport is serviced by Air Canada, Air Transat, WestJet, Porter and Sunwing.

Drop off/Pick up Areas
A designated area in front of the Departures Entrance allows for greater convenience when dropping off passengers. As at all Canadian airports, for safety and security reasons, this area is for drop off only and vehicles may not be parked by the curb. Drivers are asked not to leave their vehicles unattended at the curb in front of the terminal building. Unattended vehicles may be ticketed or towed at the owner’s expense.
Passengers can be picked up at the curb in front of Arrivals, but only as they exit the terminal building. Please do not wait in this area.
Remember – if you need a bit of extra time or want to walk your family into the terminal, we offer 15 minutes free parking in the short term parking lot.
