Welcome to Calgary International Airport (YYC)! Calgary International is located only a short distance northeast of downtown at 2000 Airport Road Northeast. This major Canadian airport, fourth in the country today in terms of air passenger traffic, began as a much smaller operation in 1914 consisting of a grass runway and a small hut that served as the air hangar and terminal building. The airport was relocated in 1938 to its present location. Calgary International is the third busiest airport in the country in terms of flight volume, handling over 12 million passengers a year.
WestJet has set up headquarters at Calgary International while Air Canada and Air Canada Jazz use Calgary as a hub. Major cities in Canada, the United States, Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, and East Asia can be accessed through Calgary International via nonstop flights.
The Calgary Airport Authority operates Calgary International Airport and maintains a comfortable environment for passengers by taking excellent care of its employees. The airport was named one of Alberta's best employers in 2008.
