The following information is sourced from Wikipedia (
"Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (IATA code YWG) opened in 1928 as Stevenson Aerodrome in honour of the noted Manitoba aviator and pioneer bush pilot, Captain Fred J. Stevenson. Stevenson Aerodrome (Stevenson Field) was Canada's first international airport. In 1958, at the request of the Canadian Department of Transport, Stevenson Field was officially renamed the Winnipeg International Airport.

A major project involving the construction of a new terminal is underway. The terminal was designed by the world famous architect C├ęsar Pelli. The new terminal, to be located northeast of the existing terminal, is being constructed in two phases with the first phase complete by 2010. Construction on the new terminal began in the early spring of 2007. The Winnipeg Airports Authority hopes to attract better services using widebody aircraft including the Boeing 747 with the completion of the new terminal. It should also attract the A380, A340, Boeing 777, and 787. Most recent plans for the current terminal are for a complete "teardown" in 2010. In its place, a new shared facility building will become the new home of the Western Canada Aviation Museum."
