New gas station at Halifax Stanfield International

Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) has taken steps to ensure the availability of gasoline on its site by installing a temporary station.

The move by the Canadian authority has been made after recent notification from the owners of the Petro-Canada outlet (Suncor Energy Inc.) that they will close the station at Halifax Stanfield on September 2, 2014.

HIAA President & CEO Joyce Carter, explains: “I am pleased to announce that we have signed an agreement with Irving Oil. Irving is installing a temporary station on Goudey Drive, just past the Petro-Canada Bell Boulevard site.”

The Irving site will offer three grades of gasoline; a fully stocked convenience store; commercial card program; pay-at-the-pump technology; Air Miles Reward Miles; and 24/7 operations.

Carter adds: “We are targeting September 2, 2014 as the operational date for this facility.

“The airport authority’s objective is to ensure uninterrupted, on-site availability of gasoline for our thousands of daily passengers and visitors, taxi and limousine operators, as well as for our on-site rental car operators.”

The circumstances provide HIAA with an opportunity to upgrade the gas station and convenience store offering, Carter says, and she adds: "HIAA will now pursue a long-term, permanent arrangement with a gas station/convenience store operator as part of our commercial development."
