The opening of the new terminal at YYC marks the completion of the largest single infrastructure program in the airport’s history – the Airport Development Program.

The new 186,000 square metre (two million square foot) terminal adds 24 aircraft gates at YYC, and incorporates numerous technologies and processes designed to streamline the passenger experience throughout the airport.

These include North America’s first call-to-gate passenger boarding system, North America’s first full CATSA Plus enhanced passenger screening system, enhanced U.S. and Canadian customs technology, a state of the art Crisbag tote-based baggage system and the YYC LINK, a custom-designed and Canadian-build passenger shuttle service that transports passengers between the domestic and international facilities.
