Photo: Overcrowding persists at Rankin Inlet airport

Hopeful passengers cram into Rankin Inlet's air terminal Feb. 24, although many flights that day ended up either cancelled or delayed due to poor visibility, fueling issues and mechanical problems. The removal of an historical display on the Kivalliq region gained some space in the waiting area, but the passenger terminal, which sees up to 55,000 people passing through every year, remains cramped. More improvements will flow from the $27 million announced last November for Rankin Inlet's airport. (PHOTO BY JANE GEORGE)
