Work is about to begin on over $5 million worth of upgrades to the Prince George Airport.

They include an elevator and new stairwells from the long-term parking lot to the terminal level, improvements to Gate 2 in the boarding lounge and a replacement of the concrete panels on one of the aprons.

Airport customers can also expect to see new flooring in the departures area as well as new check in counters and public address system in the terminal.

"We are still working out the fine details in terms of schedule, but people can expect to start seeing some changes in the coming weeks," PGAA operations director Cuyler Green said.

Passengers are being asked to be patient.

"There will be some disruptions, but we will do our best to ensure the temporary changes are communicated to the public in a timely manner," PGAA chief executive officer John Gibson said.

Work on the apron will be the first to get underway. It's expected all the projects will be completed by the end of this year.
