Calgary International is an international airport that serves the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is located approximately 17 kilometers northeast of downtown and covers an area of 20.82 square kilometers. With 14.5 million passengers in 2022 and 124,108 aircraft movements in 2021, Calgary International is the busiest airport in Alberta and the fourth busiest in Canada by passenger traffic. The region’s petroleum and tourism industries (and its proximity to Banff National Park) have helped foster growth at the airport, which has nonstop flights to an array of destinations in North and Central America, Europe, and Asia. Calgary serves as the headquarters and primary hub for WestJet.
Built in the late 1930s, the site has since grown to house four runways, two terminal buildings with five concourses for passengers, warehouses for cargo handling, and other infrastructure.
