Thanks for the link, a few new renderings but I want to sink my teeth into some nice big ones to view. That is just more of a tease!

I recognized they went the semi-opaque panel approach, but hello green roof missed.

I agree. There is so much roof area there, it could probably be a fully-functioning farm!

Cool. After looking at that I was thinking about how the car rental companies access their lots? (Cluster of buildings south of airport) I know from my days at Hertz (looong time ago) the lot was down the service road, which now looks like its cut off from the airport?

Guess they have to go south towards McKnight then around Deerfoot or through the NE..

I never even thought about that. I would guess the rental companies are planning to move to empty lots north of Airport trail.

Plenty of room to expand north of pier D (the Westjet arm) and wrap around to the north. Also keep in mind with Barlow closed there will be that space to the east of the portion of Barlow that is staying.

Edit: Here is a quick and dirty MSpaint showing the available areas:

Personally, i really like Ottawa Airport. It's so simple, and looks nice, and it's not too big, etc.

Saskatoon? You don't think Saskatoon might be a bit over-served by an airport that size?

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.
