 YWG Winnipeg Airport Info & Guide

Winnipeg International Airport

Where is Winnipeg Airport?  

The point where the Assiniboine and Red Rivers meet in Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba on the Canadian prairies, was once a fur trading post. Today "The Forks" is a popular recreation and year-round gathering spot. Winter temperatures below -15°C (5°F), even as low as -40°C (-40°F) at times, coupled with biting wind, have earned the city the nickname "Winterpeg". In summer, however, the humidex (the combined effect of heat and humidity) reaches above 30°C (86°F), and the longest day of the year lasts 16 hours. In this city of contrasts, you'll find history and architecture, multiculturalism and culture, and a resilient people.
