About the Fort McMurray Airport Authority (FMAA)

In 1999, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) created the Regional Airport Commission to take over ownership the airport from the federal government. In 2007, the runway was extended to its current length of 2,286 metres (7,500 feet).

The Fort McMurray Airport was incorporated as an Airport Authority in December 2009. The first Airport Authority Board was formed in January 2010 to become the Fort McMurray Airport Authority (FMAA). The newly formed organization acquired the airport from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) and took the first steps to becoming Canada’s Premier Regional Airport.
