CAA and Canadian government officially rename Calgary Airport

Marc Garneau, minister of transport for Canada, has officially renamed Calgary International Airport as YYC Calgary International Airport. YYC has been the official IATA code for the airport throughout its history and will now be part of its official new name.

Garth Atkinson, president and CEO of the Calgary Airport Authority (CAA), the airport operator, said, “We branded the airport publicly as YYC in 2008 and the tremendous positive reaction of the Calgary community led us to initiate discussions with Transport Canada and Minister Garneau’s office regarding the official re-naming of the airport.

“The iconic YYC brand has grown to symbolize the city we serve and businesses we support and is now used in the everyday language of Calgarians. We are very pleased that this brand has been formally incorporated into our official airport name.”

Mary Moran, president and CEO of Calgary Economic Development, a non-profit organization concerned with economic development of the city, said, “The YYC brand has infiltrated the psyche and vocabulary of everyday Calgarians, has grown along with the growth in social media, and is now ubiquitous when describing Calgary.”
