One of the biggest airports in western Canada, Calgary International Airport (YYC) is located 20km (13 miles) northeast of downtown Calgary. The spacious and sunny terminal handles more than 12 million people every year, making it one of Canada’s busiest airports.
Flights to Calgary International Airport come in from all over the continent, including major hubs like Los Angeles, Cancun, Edmonton, Portland, Dallas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Winnipeg, Salt Lake City, Honolulu, San Francisco, Phoenix, Seattle and Denver. You can also get international flights from Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Zurich, and Glasgow.
Calgary is an important business destination in Western Canada, but even more people fly into Calgary Airport for a taste of Alberta’s wilder side, with easy access to Glacier National Park, the pristine Lake Louise, and hiking opportunities in Banff. The busiest time to fly here is definitely during the Calgary Stampede though, when the city is filled with more cowboys than you can count.
