YYC Calgary Airport Info & Guide
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.

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).
