Why Gatineau?

An access to both a regional and an international airport


The Gatineau-Ottawa region has two passenger airports-one on each side of the river and both easily accessible and about 30 minutes to the downtown core.

Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport

Located near highway 50, some 20 minutes from the region’s main arteries, the Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport extends over 142 hectares. The landing strip measures 1828 m, and can accommodate light and larger planes, including Boeing 737s. The airport also has an AOE/15 customs clearance service.

Ottawa/Macdonald-Cartier International Airport

The main passenger transport hub for Canada’s Capital Region and the Canada’s sixth busiest airport, Macdonald-Cartier International Airport is classified as airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency, and has United States border preclearance facilities.
