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.
