Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
HAMILTON — John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) is sporting a brand new look these days after undergoing a terminal refresh.
The airport partnered with The Laundry Design Works, a local design firm from Hamilton, to introduce a revitalized look that would reflect the growth happening both at the airport and throughout the city of Hamilton.
To achieve this, The Laundry painted the walls in blue and green, both of which are used in the airport’s logo, and also included travel quotes on the walls to provide the perfect backdrop for ‘selfies’. These are visible throughout the airport, both pre- and post-security.
Plus, an all-new Kid’s Zone has been relocated to the front of the Departures Lounge, featuring a window view of arriving and departing aircraft. The fun space, which sits atop soft artificial turf, offers new toys, games and a brand new flatscreen TV to ensure that every young passenger is entertained.
Considered North America’s fastest growing airport, YHM served nearly 600,000 passengers in 2017, a year-over-year increase of 80%.
