 YYC Calgary Airport Info & Guide

Calgary International Airport

Where is Calgary Airport?  

Oil sands and drilling rigs, cattle and cowboys. A 10 day annual stampede. Is it any wonder that the "cowtown" moniker endures?

Amidst it all, Calgary has a thriving economy, is home to award winning employers and is attracting an increasing number of corporate head offices. So close to the Canadian Rocky Mountains that you can see them, Calgary boasts some of the best skiing in the world in nearby Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise.

Calgary International Airport (IATA: YYC, ICAO: CYYC), or simply Calgary Airport, is located southwest of Calgary city centre, in Alberta, Canada.

YYC is Canada's 4th busiest airport (it served 14,316,074 passengers in 2013). At Calgary Airport you're as likely to see a small commuter aircraft or a corporate jet, as you are an Airbus or Boeing 747. The airport has a wing dedicated to international flights (there are US border pre-clearance facilities here), and a new international terminal is under construction (it's due to open in 2014).

Airlines that fly to Calgary Airport include Air Canada, Air North, Air Transat, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Central Mountain Air, Condor, Delta Air Lines, KLM, United Airlines, US Airways and WestJet.

Cities with flights to Calgary Airport include Amsterdam, Cancún, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Frankfurt, Honolulu, Ixtapa, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Manzanillo, Minneapolis, Montego Bay, Nassau, New York, Palm Springs, Panama City, Paris, Phoenix, Puerto Vallarta, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Tokyo, among others, as well as destinations throughout Canada.

Your best bet for a Calgary Airport transfer is a bus to nearby trains and the Bus Rapid Transit System. Details on all options are included in this guide.

Or, to truly arrive stress free, treat yourself to a private Calgary Airport transfer from IHateTaxis.

Bonus: there is an on-site Calgary Airport hotel - it's a Delta - so that's handy if you have an early flight.

In 2013 and 2014, Calgary International Airport was featured on Amazing Race Canada.
