Plans were finalized for the expansion of the 'A' pier at Vancouver International Airport sometime this week. From what I understand, there will be five gates - three over-the-wing bridges, two regular bridges. The present 'A' pier is currently being stripped of everything but the steel frame. The side of the terminal will be all glass, which will be quite a difference from the dull 'B' pier of present.
For those working on the ramp - all gates will be equipped with gate power and airstart power. I'm not entirely sure about there being gate water.
While the gates are being labelled "common use", this project is for Westjet - and its about time they get their own gates!!!!
