Here's some handy information on Moncton Airport, sourced from Wikipedia:
GMIA is home to the Moncton Flight College, the largest flight college in Canada. On January 11, 1928, the first scheduled air flight out of the Greater Moncton area took place. This flight was carrying mail and passengers to the Magdalen Islands. Two sites were considered for the first air strip. Leger's Corner was finally chosen however because of more favourable landing conditions.

The new air terminal was completed in 2002. Throughout the years, many ongoing renovations were made to the air terminal building, including in 1998-99, an international arrivals area to suit the needs of 1999's Eighth Sommet de la Francophonie. A large landing apron was constructed at the same time at the opposite side of the airport in a location which would later become the site of the new international airport terminal. This landing apron would be pressed into service in a dramatic manner on September 11, 2001 when airspace over North America was shut down following the World Trade Center attacks. A dozen flights with over 2,000 passengers were diverted to the Greater Moncton Airport.
Airlines using Moncton include:
  • Air Canada Jazz
