It was another record breaking year at Calgary’s International Airport with officials saying passenger traffic increased by 4.9 per cent to 14.3 million passengers and cargo tonnage grew 2.1 per cent to over 119,000 tonnes last year.

Officials pointed to YYC’s extensive route network, cargo connections and industry-leading commercial operations for the record-breaking growth. Among the developments last year, the Calgary Airport Authority opened an 11,600 sqm air cargo building and added 50,000 sqm of dedicated cargo apron equipped with in-ground fuelling. A significant amount of work was completed on the new runway and the new international concourse which will ensure YYC is well positioned for projected growth.
