The Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF) is pulling out all the stops for the spring/summer travel season, as they are installing a massive food, drink and retail section in their terminal space. 

The Stockyards at YKF is on track to finish construction by late spring of this year and offer those travelling through the Waterloo airport a refined space to shop and dine, with services provided by Waterloo’s own Stockyards Brewing Co. 

“This partnership with Stockyards will further elevate the passenger experience at YKF as we continue to invest in our airport,” said Karen Redman, Chair of the Region of Waterloo in an official statement.

“YKF will bolster our economic future and the overall quality of life here in Waterloo Region. We are thrilled to welcome Stockyards, a company with deep local roots, and look forward to what is next as we continue to grow.”

The fundamental foundation of the Stockyards at YKF is to provide a licensed dining area for people to take a break pre-flight while also providing a fully loaded merchandise area to do some last-minute shopping. 

“We are drawing on our lived experience to build an offering that will leave a lasting impression on passengers travelling through the airport. We want to celebrate our Region’s heritage and diversity,” said Willy Huber, Chairman of Stockyards in an official release. 

According to data provided by Waterloo International Airport, the location continues to be the fastest-growing airport in Canada.
