Kingston Airport (Norman Rogers Airport) was constructed in 1940 with the City of Kingston assuming full responsibility for the airport's operation and development in 1972. The airport property is managed by municipal staff. Baggage handling, aircraft de-icing, fuel provision and passenger clearance is contracted out by the airline(s). The 301.5 hectare (745 acres) airport has two main runways. The principal runway has a length of 1,524m (5,000 ft.) of asphalt surface.

The airport is named for the Honourable Norman Rogers, MP for Kingston and the Islands, who was first elected to the House of Commons in 1935. Within the year he became Minister of Labour and later Minister of Defence, serving under Prime Minister MacKenzie King. The Honourable Norman Rogers was killed in a plane crash on June 10, 1940, while on Government business.

Kingston Airport or Kingston/Norman Rogers Airport, (IATA: YGK, ICAO: CYGK), is an airport located 4.3 nautical miles (7.96 km) west of the core of Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

The airport is named after former MP Norman McLeod Rogers (Kingston and the Islands 1935-1940), Minister of Labour and then National Defence in Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King's cabinet. Rogers died in a plane crash on June 10 1940 while flying from Ottawa to Toronto for a speaking engagement.

History
The Kingston airport was originally a British Commonwealth Air Training Program (BCATP) air force station built in 1940 at the beginning of World War II. The aerodrome hosted the Royal Air Force No. 31 Service Flying Training School, which provided advanced flight training in Battle and Harvard aircraft. A decommissioned yellow Harvard aircraft now stands on a pedestal near the airport entrance to commemorate that role. The airport was transferred to city control in 1972.

The airport's runway outline displays the classic BCATP triangle pattern. Originally, the airport had three 2,500 foot runways. Later, runway 01/19 was extended northwards to a length of 5,000 feet to handle larger aircraft (the prevailing wind is from the south off Lake Ontario), and runway 07/25 was extended northeastwards to a length of nearly 4,000 feet. The remaining runway, 12/30, was decommissioned in 2003 and converted to a taxiway.

Operations
Air Canada Jazz offers regular scheduled air service between the airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport. The airport also supports a large amount of general aviation traffic including air ambulance service, charter, flight training, and general recreational flying. As the only public airport to offer an ILS approach along the corridor between Montreal and Toronto, the Kingston airport is an important alternate during low weather conditions.
