Puvirnituq Airport in Quebec, Canada has opened a CA$6.5m (£4.1m) passenger terminal, offering a more spacious and modern area for passengers to enjoy on departure and arrival.

According to World Interior Design Network (WIDN), the 3,048m² terminal was designed by Fournier, Gersovitz, Moss and Associates and is part of the airport’s CA$45m (£28.5m) multi-year renovation project.

Following the renovation, the terminal is now four times the size of the original building and includes airline counters, baggage rooms, a security section and a space for retail operation. The airport can now accommodate large-capacity jets, such as Air Inuit’s Boeing 737-200C.

Further renovation and expansion projects that have taken place between 2009-2012 include an extension of the airport’s runway, widening of the aircraft apron, construction of a new garage and relocations of the airport access road and navigation aid equipment, WIDN reported.
