New Observation Deck At YOW

Wed Jun 27, 2001 11:16 am

For those on the board that live in Ottawa or travel to/from here, the airport authority has constructed a new open air observation deck. It is located behind gate 14 and it provides a good view of the commuter ramp and the construction that is taking place on the new terminal building. If you happen to be at YOW check it out sometime.

To: YOW.......

Thanks for the update information on the new deck
at the terminal......

Can you tell me the following, as I want to see it this

Is the deck upstairs in the departure area, through a door overlooking the ramp area, or is it external of the
building, up some stairs, and through a security area.

(In relation to where you enter the terminal bulding)

Hey...The observation deck is located outside on the roof of the first floor. It is located at the end of the terminal building behind gate 14. There are stairs outside that lead you up to it. Unfortunately I was at the airport at around 2030 and it was too late to go up. But I bet you get a half-decent view of the airside (at least the domestic commuter end. It appears to be free. The main purpose it to provide people to view construction of the new terminal.

Hope this helps.
