  • The closest airport to Charlottetown Airport (YYG) is Summerside Airport (YSU), which is located 36 miles (57 kilometers) WNW of YYG.
  • Because of Charlottetown Airport's relatively low elevation of 159 feet, planes can take off or land at Charlottetown Airport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
  • Several expansions were subsequently undertaken, including an enlarged civilian air terminal off the Brackley Point Road on the west side of the airfield, as well as a lengthening and realigning of what would become runway 03/21 during the 1960s-1970s to accommodate jet aircraft.
