June 1, 2009 – To mark Canada's 100 Years of Flight, the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport is waiving landing fees for privately registered aircraft less than 2,000 kg MTOW for the remainder of 2009.

Richard Koroscil, President and CEO of John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport wants to mark the occasion by recognizing the contribution of aviators to our rich flight history in Canada.

"Hamilton's airport was built on this site in 1940. It was a multi-use military training facility for flight training, air navigation, telegraphy and air gunnery. We've come a long way since then. Hamilton
International Airport is now the largest multi-modal air cargo airport in the country. It also offers passengers more than twenty destinations from coast to coast with WestJet, flights to England, Scotland
and Ireland with flyglobespan and seasonal winter charters to popular sun destinations," says Koroscil.

Hamilton Airport is also home to The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum (CWHM). Guests from around the world make the trip to visit this world-class facility. CWHM is a living museum featuring aircraft used
by Canadians from the beginning of WWII up to the present. Itinerant parking is available at the museum for fly-in visitors.
