Prince George, B.C.- “On time and on budget” that’s how Prince George Airport Authority CEO John Gibson described the completion of the warehouse facility at the Prince George Airport.The 25 thousand square foot facility is a key factor to moving YXS into a cargo facility. With tenant Rosenau Transport occupying 60% of the facility, there are still 10 thousand square feet of space looking for a tenant.
“If we are going to expand the use of this airport, we need to make sure that there’s a facility like this in place” said MLA Shirley Bond. “This will be a catalyst” said Bond, who says when investors want to make sure that when their goods land “They want to be able to move those goods to market as quickly an efficiently as possible.” In short, Bond said “Logistics matter.”
The efforts to secure cargo carriers continues says YXS CEO John Gibson “We’ve got the cargo facility, we’ve got the fueling facility up and operating, we have an MOU with a carrier that will come, we’re trying to get a test flight this year, the carrier has agreed to it. We now need to make sure we grab the product to go on the flight.”
Gibson says the airport is very close to bringing the cargo dream to reality “We are as close as we can be without being there.”
