Edmonton International Airport

Where is Edmonton Airport?  


YEG Edmonton International Airport (or "EIA") is the primary air passenger and air cargo facility in Edmonton, Alberta as well as a major hub facility for Northern Alberta and Northern Canada. It is Canada's 5th busiest airport by passenger traffic and the 10th busiest by aircraft movements.


Located 14 NM (26 kilometres; 16 miles) south southwest of downtown Edmonton, EIA served almost 6.2 million passengers in 2011, and is operated by the Edmonton Airports Authority. YEG Edmonton International Airport serves as one of WestJet's four largest markets, as well as a focus city for Air Canada and Air Canada Jazz. The airport offers regularly scheduled nonstop flights to major cities in Canada, Europe and the United States.


In 2012, an expansion program at Edmonton Airport unveiled new passenger conveniences and features. Still to be completed are an 8-story central tower (to house the NAV Canada control tower, and businesses, such as Canadian Helicopters Western Canadian headquarters), and a Courtyard by Marriott hotel adjacent to the north terminal (to open January 2013.)


In August 2013, Edmonton Airport was briefly featured on Amazing Race Canada.
