Charlottetown Airport Authority believes in a strong, vibrant and growing community and supports this vision through special events and charitable partnerships. Following are some events the airport initiated or sponsored in recent years:
Flypei Runway Run:
Since 2013, Charlottetown Airport has held the inaugural 5km Runway Run event at the airport in support of Habitat for Humanity PEI. Over 300 people lace up to support this local cause every year. Habitat for Humanity PEI is a non-profit organization that partners with low-income families to build safe, decent and affordable homes.
PEI International Shellfish Festival:
Every September, competitive shuckers, celebrity chefs, music lovers and shellfish fans gather in Charlottetown for festivities built around the Island's shellfish industry. Charlottetown Airport has been a proud sponsor of the International Shellfish Festival, which celebrates our PEI seafood producers and harvesters and provides a strong draw for visitors to vacation on the Island during September.
