History / Biographical
On 6 June 1927 City Council first discussed the establishment of an airport in the Fairmont subdivision in north Lethbridge. On 13 October 1927 the 'Lethbridge Air Harbour' was licensed as a customs port of entry for airplanes. Southern Alberta Airlines built a hangar at the Municipal Airport, and enlarged it in 1929. On 1 October 1930 the hangar at the Municipal Airport was finished, and taken over by the City of Lethbridge. The Municipal Airport remained in operation until 1939, when Kenyon Field was opened south of the city.
