The Oakville-Burlington area is between Hamilton and Toronto, and offers residents a choice of two airports.

John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (“YHM”)

Hamilton is served by the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (“YHM”), on the southern edge of the city. This airport grew out of the WWII Commonwealth Air Training Station, and is named for a legendary Hamilton member of parliament who served in several cabinet capacities from 1963 to 1984, and then was head of Transport Canada for several years.

In 1980, the airport expanded by building a new east-west 8,000 ft. east-west runway, an expanded air terminal building with expanded parking. This enabling the airport to accommodate larger aircraft, and the new 1985 Passenger Terminal Building enabled HIA to process up to 450,000 passengers per year with ease. In 2002, the airport underwent a second expansion, in order to meet the needs of WestJet, as well as the various winter tour operators, with the Canada Customs capacity is increased to 200 persons/hr

Hamilton International offers high-speed wireless internet service throughout its entire terminal.


Hamilton International Airport offers parking for about 2200 vehicles including Short-Term parking located directly in front of the Air Terminal Building and Long-Term parking located just beyond the short-term lot. Both lots are fully automated for entry, and you can use your Credit Card for faster check-in and check-out (must be the same credit card). For Long Term parking rates are $2 per half hour, with maximums of $10 per day, $50 for the first week (plus $10 per day therafter). The short term parking is also $2 per half hour, with a daily maximum of $14 per day, $70 for the first week (plus $14 per day therafter)
