Peterborough Airport Joins the Southern Ontario Airport Network

Members of the Southern Ontario Airport Network include: Toronto Pearson International Airport, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Hamilton John C. Munro International Airport, Lake Simcoe Regional Airport, London International Airport, Oshawa Executive Airport, Niagara District Airport, Peterborough Airport, Region of Waterloo Airport, and Windsor International Airport. Transport Canada and Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation are also important contributors to SOAN’s work.  

SOAN members recognize that the region has the potential, given its many air transportation assets, to meet the growing demand for air travel. Through responsible planning, the SOAN will ensure that the region is well placed to keep the jobs and economic benefits of air service demand in Southern Ontario.

"Peterborough Airport executives have been working with the Southern Ontario Airport Network (SOAN) since 2015.

Working with the Southern Ontario Airport Network allows Peterborough Airport to identify opportunities for air service and land development projects, and share best practices with the other 10 airports in the Network.

This initiative will help Peterborough Airport achieve its objective which is to grow the number of aerospace companies as well as general and corporate aviation tenants located at the airport.

In addition, Peterborough Airport hopes to develop inbound and outbound destinations with commuter air carriers.”
