Limited Public Address System at YXS

Prince George, BC— Passengers will need to be extra attentive when waiting for flights at the Prince George Airport (YXS), due to limited public address capabilities. The airport is implementing a temporary three-zone speaker system, which will stay in place while they upgrade to a new public-address system. As a result, announcements may not be as audible in some areas of the terminal, and there will be no announcements outdoors. The changeover is expected to take up to six months.

PGAA President and CEO, John Gibson, says “We are asking passengers to go through passenger screening at the time advised by their airline, and check the screens in the terminal if they do not hear announcements. There may be some areas of the terminal where passengers will not hear announcements.” The Prince George Airport continues to upgrade the services in the terminal to better serve the public.

“We are asking for passengers’ patience while we improve the airport for all of our users.” adds Gibson.
