Mont-Joli Airport (CYYY), is located 1.5 nautical miles (2.8 km) north northwest of Mont-Joli, Quebec, Canada. In the summer of 1940 the Royal Canadian Air Force selected a flat area of farmland between Mont-Joli Station (on the Montreal-Halifax Canadian National Railway mainline) and the Saint Lawrence River for a military airfield. Construction on the aerodrome began in October 1941 and was completed by April 1942 at a cost of $200,000. Three paved runways and fifty buildings were constructed for what became known as RCAF Station Mont-Joli. By Daniel Louvet.
Inaugurated on April 15, 1942, RCAF Station Mont-Joli was used as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan for a bombing and gunnery school until the end of World War II. Less well-known was RCAF Station Mont-Joli's critical role during the Battle of the St. Lawrence when RCAF Eastern Air Command used it as a coastal patrol base; during 1942-1944, dozens of Canadian cargo and warships were sunk by German U-boats in an effort to close the critical Saint Lawrence Seaway off to shipping. Aircraft staging out of Mont-Joli were crucial to warding off U-boats and ensuring the safety of shipping out to the eastern tip of the Gaspé Peninsula at Cap-Gaspé.
RCAF Station Mont-Joli was decommissioned by the air force in 1945 and became the property of the Department of Transport (now Transport Canada) on December 15, 1945 for use as a civilian airport, and its ownership was transferred in 1995 to the "Régie intermunicipale de l’aéroport régional de Mont-Joli". It is the busiest airport in Eastern Quebec, though still very far from the Québec/Jean Lesage International Airport in Quebec City and Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal.
In 2007 a second runway (15/33) was opened and the 06/24 runway decreased in length from 6,000 ft (1,829 m) to 5,000 ft (1,524 m).
I have enhanced both parking lot for all type of aircrafts, fuel service and some extra vehicule. I also included the charts of the airport.
