We're loving this cheeky campaign from Calgary Economic Development. And we agree, #YYC
is an amazing city!

A bird's eye view of the International Terminal. Where are you flying to this week? ✈️

We're proud to be one of the first stops for travellers visiting Alberta, YYC, and region. Love how Travel Alberta captures the beauty and adventure within our province in their latest video.
Today our partners at WestJet announced that its new wide-body hangar will be located at YYC Calgary International Airport! The introduction of this hangar is the next step in their evolution as an International airline, opening up new markets and opportunities for passengers and businesses to connect to more global destinations from YYC.

The annual UPS Kids Plane Pull took place today, and we had a great day attending! In support of United Way Calgary, teams of kids aged seven to 17 pulled an aircraft across the tarmac and fundraised for their community. Every one brought their enthusiasm and worked hard! Thank you to our YYC Crew for volunteering!
Exciting news on a Friday! Desigual
- a clothing brand from Barcelona, known for its trendy designs and splashes of colour - just opened a pop-up shop. Our airport's original Desigual store can be found post-security, International Departures, and this new pop-up shop is available to all YYC guests from today until mid-January, 2018. Find the pop-up on the Departures level, pre-security, near Concourse C.
Always a treat to see this beauty at YYC - British Airways 747 aircraft ✈️
Beakerhead has landed at YYC! From Sept 13 - 15, noon to 2 p.m., volunteer actors in space suits will be roaming the terminal greeting passengers. Be sure to snap a photo and say hello to our out-of-this-world guests from Mars, and the "Calgary Municipal Space Station".
Earlier today, passengers were treated to a surprise performance by Italian pianist (and 2015 Prize Laureate) Luca Buratto at International Departures to officially welcomes the Honens Piano to YYC. We're one of the lucky recipients who gets to host the special Honens piano in our terminal. As part of Canada's 150th anniversary, Honens invited visual artists to transform used upright pianos to represent different parts of Canada. Our piano is designed by local artist Brianna Strong, and incorporates elements of the Rockies and the Calgary skyline.
As we close off the first week of September, we'd like to extend a huge thank you to our summer and co op students for an amazing term. We hire 50+ students in almost every department every year, and they become part of our culture, and are encouraged to participate in all the unique events and programs that take place at YYC. Thanks from all of us at YYC! 🙌🏼
Today, with our airline and agency partners, we held a full-scale mock exercise at YYC. The exercise included a simulated aircraft incident on the airfield with WestJet playing the role of the fictitious "Vega Airlines".
The mock incident gave our partners and agencies the chance to practice their emergency response plans. We'd like to extend a big thank you to all of our volunteers and partners for participating in this exercise! More: http://bit.ly/2j8B1NO
Travel alert: on Thursday, September 7, we will be holding a full-scale mock exercise at YYC. This simulated exercise will take place on the airfield, and while you might notice extra volunteers in the terminal that day, and emergency vehicles and first responders on airport roads, the exercise will not impact operations.
These full scale exercises are a valuable learning tool to test our extensive emergency response plans to ensure the continued safety of the travelling public, airport employees, and agency and airline partners.
