Taking an airport to new heights
The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is one of the newest and best positioned regional airport facilities in Canada. Located in one of the fastest growing regions of Ontario directly serving a population base of over 450,000, the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport serves the County of Simcoe including the municipalities of Barrie and the Township of Oro-Medonte. The Airport offers these users a convenient location in close proximity to both the Greater Toronto Area as well as pristine Central Ontario Cottage Country. With its modern airport facilities and 6,001 ft runway, the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is able to serve a wide variety of aircraft ranging from small recreational and flight training aircraft to larger corporate, regional and commercial aircraft.
How we helped:
In 2007 we met with Mike Drumm from Lake Simcoe Regional Airport to begin one of our long-standing client relationships. We created a new modern logo and custom CMS website built in Adobe Flash. (We did say 2007!) In 2012 we re-launched a new design, fresh content and refocused on new opportunities at the airport. And in 2019, redeveloped it again to allow for more content management abilities. They love the new CMS, built on one of our favourite platforms,Word Press and DIVI.

Things we worked on:
The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport through its parent, the City of Barrie, undertook to completely re-brand the regional airport’s image with a new corporate logo and web site as the core projects. The diverse nature and fast pace of the aviation business demanded a product that would define the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport as contender in the global market – Rhubarb Media was able to provide such a product. Not only did the creative and dynamic team at Rhubarb deliver a professional image of the airport, but were able to do so with the initial parameters evolving into a larger product. I would highly recommend the services of this group.

The Northern Rockies Regional Airport (NRRA), being one of the fastest growing airports in Canada, was looking to develop a new website that utilizes the most effective technology to enable the airport to provide a dynamic, interactive and user-friendly website for its passengers.
In early 2013, the NRRA had selected Rhubarb media through a competitive public FRP process due to their great deal of attention put forward into their proposal and their forward thinking in order to achieve the goals of the NRRA.
Rhubarb Media’s objective was to produce a website that would support the airport’s overall strategic vision of attracting additional routes and airline partners to serve domestic regional markets not currently represented at NRRA. Equally important was this project’s ability to attract new business and investment through e-marketing and the publication of pertinent airport economic development information and links on the website.
Here’s what they had to say:
“Throughout the entire process, Rhubarb Media was thoroughly organized and extremely easy to work with. They were able to compile all of our requests and produce a product that not only functioned extremely well, but went above and beyond to ensure the site not only matched our vision, but exceeded it far beyond our expectations.
Rhubarb was continuously looking out for the NRRA’s interest, and was innovative in finding solutions to our unique operations of a busy northern airport. Their approach to customer service, although very professional, came off as working with a friend than a typical client/business relationship which was easily helpful at putting us at ease during meetings and troubleshooting scenarios.
Rhubarb Media were an absolutely joy to work with, and I highly recommend their services.” (Eric Desnoyers, Business Manager, Northern Rockies Regional Airport)
