Trail Regional Airport Advisory Committee becomes official

The Trail Regional Airport Advisory Committee has been officially re-established, just days after the Trail Regional Airport celebrated a 10-year milestone membership with the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce.

This significant step aims to elevate the airport’s services, maintaining and growing it as a vital transportation hub in the West Kootenay region.

The committee will serve Council by providing insights, making recommendations, and fostering new community partnerships. The mission is to enhance the airport’s economic benefit to the region, as well as improve air services, facilities and advancements at the Trail Regional Airport. A commitment to transparency and accountability will guide the committee’s actions.

“The Trail Regional Airport is a great economic driver for the region,” says Councillor Thea Hanson.

“We brought this committee back to embrace and expand on airport partnerships in the community, explore economic growth opportunities and establish the airport as a major commercial transportation hub in the Kootenay Region.”

Trail’s City Council has appointed leaders of the committee: Councillor Thea Hanson to be the Chair and Councillor Paul Butler as the Alternate Chair and member of the committee, for a term ending Sept. 30, 2026. Their expertise and dedication will lift the City’s efforts to new heights.

“The future is bright at Trail Regional Airport,” added Councillor Paul Butler. “We have been fortunate to work with the talented team at Pacific Coastal Airlines. From the ticket agents, to pilots, and of course their corporate leadership; the relationships have always been strong.”

The goal is clear: Trail Regional Airport will attract more businesses, travellers and opportunities. Recruitment for community members to join the committee will begin soon.
