Calgary’s international terminal marks first birthday

The Calgary Airport Authority has celebrated a year since the opening of its new international terminal at Calgary International Airport (YYC), in Alberta, Canada. Since opening, the terminal has welcomed an estimated 4.8 million international and US passengers, who carried nearly 3.7 million bags on more than 21,000 flights.

The international terminal, the largest single infrastructure project in YYC’s history, added 24 aircraft gates in addition to innovations and technologies designed to improve and streamline the overall passenger experience.

One of those innovations, the YYC Link passenger shuttles, is the first of its kind in Canada. The electric-powered, Canadian-built customized indoor vehicles assist nearly 3,500 people move through the connections corridor each day.

Bob Sartor, president and CEO for The Calgary Airport Authority, commented, “As we celebrate this milestone, we are thrilled that YYC continues to be a catalyst for our partners to grow their business from Calgary.

“Our vision for providing a positive passenger experience while working to reduce our environmental footprint in a LEED Gold certified facility, in addition to growing our airline network, has made this investment into YYC an important part of our first-anniversary success.”

With a total of 15.7 million passengers last year, YYC is one of Canada’s busiest and well-connected airports for air service, serving 80 non-stop destinations globally along with Alberta’s only non-stop passenger service to the UK, Japan, China, Switzerland, Germany, Belize and, most recently, Mexico City.
