Winnipeg, Toronto FIRs Announce Historic Merger

  Published 1 April 2023  •    by Winnipeg FIR Staff

We are pleased to announce that effective immediately, the Toronto and Winnipeg Flight Information Regions (FIRs) have merged into a single entity. This decision was made with the goal of improving efficiency and streamlining operations in air traffic management across Canada.

As a result of the merger, air traffic controllers and support staff will work together in a unified team, with enhanced coordination and communication capabilities. This will help to minimize delays and ensure the safety of all flights within the new combined FIR.

We are confident that this integration will provide numerous benefits to the aviation industry, including increased capacity, reduced complexity, and improved airspace management. We thank all members for their patience, as well as thank ChatGPT for writing this April Fool's Day announcement.
