Aviation and Aerospace

The Lethbridge County Airport has a significant amount of available land for expanded industrial use. Opportunity exists within this sector for airport development and service enhancement. A current initiative is in place to facilitate the addition of more frequent flights and the addition of other related businesses (hospitality and aircraft maintenance). Key companies already doing business in this sector are:

  • Pratt & Whitney Canada (www.pwc.ca) has plants in Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Alberta. The Lethbridge plant employs 130 and assembles and tests the PT6 helicopter engine. Currently 700 airlines use Pratt & Whitney engines and there are 45,000 PWC engines in use worldwide.
  • Lethbridge County Airport (www.lethcounty.ca) is committed to maintaining the airport as a self-sustaining entity with no County moneys going toward operations or capital improvements. A number of manufacturing plants and air service businesses are currently located at the airport. The Airport Marketing Enhancement Initiative is three year project to bring more business operations to the airport.
  • Integra Air (www.integraair.com) began in 1998 to offer more flexible air service between Lethbridge and Edmonton. As the small airline grew from one 10 seat plane to adding charter flights and service to Fort McMurray. A new service is "Hot Shot" or last minute cargo delivery.
