HistoryEdit

Built in 1981 at a cost of $6.3 million[4] to replace the previous Lloydminster Airport, the new airport serves as the largest airport in the region. Despite the City of Lloydminster's status as a border city straddling the provincial border, the airport is located entirely within Alberta, whereas the old airport was entirely within Saskatchewan. Remnants of the old airport are still visible today at 53°17′54.45″N 110°00′03.85″W / 53.2984583°N 110.0010694°W / 53.2984583; -110.0010694 (Old Lloydminster Airport)
