Airport Improvement Fee: $20 for all departing non-connecting passengers

Neat features: White Hat volunteers. Space Port Educational Facility. 30-minute free parking

Major complaint: Congestion at U.S. transborder concourse


You mention that 30 million will be the capacity by 2030, but actually YYC is expected to handle 27 million passengers by 2025. If they can grow at a moderate 4% per year, they should be able to reach 24-25 million passengers by 2025. Traffic at YYC grew by average 6% pa since 1995-2009 and there is no reason that it cannot continue to grow at 4% pa average for the next 15 years.

That's probably the high number, but even if they grow at a reasonable 3% pa, they will cross 20 million passengers in 15 years.

I was once told that the concept was borrowed from train stations, the first with double level road access being Grand Central Terminal in New York.

I don't look at this thread often, so it's nice to see all the action going on at airports around the country. Props to Winnipeg and Edmonton airports. Those are nice looking projects. Calgary's new International terminal looks great too, nice to hear the a BP has been generated.

Some major stuff going on these days.

Winnipeg has competition when it comes to sunny destinations. Some Manitobans are choosing to travel to Grand Forks or Fargo to reach sunbelt destinations in the US at reduced cost. Somethings gotta give.....

Same thing is happening in areas like Greater Vancouver, Greater Toronto and any other cities near the border. When you can get flights to Palm Springs from Bellingham, WA for 39$ each way, and you live less than an hour away, how can you refuse?

There will be some form of indoor link, that render isn't up to date fully as it's also missing showing things such as the massive new parkade they built which is along part of the new terminal inside the arrivals/departures loop road (which the teal line that extends out to nowhere on the nw end of the new terminal may connect to.

People in Thunder Bay drive to Minneapolis. It's crazy. Especially since our airport is the least expensive in the National Airports System, you'd think it would be better able to compete with the US airports.

Vancouver is starting to see people travel to Bellingham and Seattle.

Yes, and someday Americans will actually have to pay for the services that they use...but not today, and so Canadians that are willing to drive benefit. I personally won't do it though, because I want to support business here.

I won't do it because the gas prices actually make it more expensive but people don't realize that because the costs are all broken up and the numbers, individually, are smaller.

Plus, you can't get to Cuba from there.

from most places in suburbia in vancouver anyway its just as far to get to YVR as it is to bellingham so the gas costs don't matter

alaska airlines has just added flights to hawaii from bellingham aimed at Canadians

I flew to san fran from Bellingham in 2009 and it was $175 (US) all taxes and fees and about 3 upgrades included, parking was $45 for the 5 days
the same flight out of vancouver would have cost just under $600!!! same day and parking at the airport would have cost more

I'd love to support business here. But I'm saving over $700 flying out of Billings, Montana to Phoenix in February for a wedding.

Did you subtract the cost of getting to Billings, though?
