The airport welcomed 15.7 million passengers in 2016, an increase of 1.3 percent over 2015.
“Our 2016 numbers show YYC and its airline partners are providing businesses and travellers access to the markets and destinations they’re looking for,” said Bob Sartor, president & CEO of the Calgary Airport Authority.
“With the opening of our new International Terminal and new cargo facilities at YYC, and the addition of destinations and services introduced in 2016, YYC will continue to be a key driver of economic growth for the City of Calgary and the province overall,” Sartor added.
YYC has opened the new two-million square foot, $1.6 billion, International Terminal on October 31, 2016.
YYC Calgary International Airport continues to be the air cargo gateway for Alberta, handling three-quarters of all air cargo in the province, and supporting the important cargo and logistics sector in southern Alberta.
