Crossroads of the World
Historic Gander International Airport is the hub for air travel and gateway to our Indigenous communities in Central Newfoundland for passengers from around the world. From the day construction began, this airport has held an important place both geographically and historically.
Exalted by the NY Times as “perfectly preserved, the terminal is a time capsule from the heady days when travel was exotic, and airports were beacons of the future.” The international lounge was opened with the blessing of QE2 in 1959. Architects consider it Canada’s most important room. Featuring acclaimed modernist art, furniture and architecture, a theatre and artisanal cocktails. Exhibits tell the stories of transatlantic triumphs, tobogganing communists, and celebrity encounters.
