Business at the Airport

The Vernon Regional Airport is a City owned and managed facility located on approximately 38.5 hectares (95 acres) at an elevation of 1141 feet above sea level approximately 8 kilometres (5 miles) southwest of downtown Vernon.

Vernon Regional Airport is a commercial airport that houses industrial-based businesses focusing on aircraft manufacturing and maintenance as well as a base for corporate, commercial, and general aviation.

There are 14 businesses on the field that employ approximately 120 people. Cumulatively the Airport contributes 30 million dollars annually to the local economy and has become a major economic generator for the region.

The City of Vernon has completed Phase I of a multi-phase upgrade to the airport since assuming control in 1998 with the goal of continuing to attract new business to the Vernon area.
