Calgary International Airport Travel Tips

Lisa C. Citizenship & Immigration, Daily Life, Updates

The Calgary International Airport has recently posted a few tips for travelers:

Before you book your flight:
  • Find out the entry requirements for your destination of choice and get prepared.
  • If travelling internationally, make sure you know Canada’s entry requirements for your return trip.
  • Make sure your government-issued photo ID is still valid.
Days before your departure flight to and from Calgary:
  • If travelling internationally, book your departure test within 3 days of travel. Bring proof of your test result to show your airline.
  • Explore YYC’s parking options.
Before you come to the airport:
  • Security screening takes time, so arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before your domestic flight or 3 hours before your international flight.
  • Leave ample driving time to navigate construction on Airport Trail.  
  • Check-in online with your airline within 24 hours of your flight.
  • Pack a mask! Masks are still required in all areas of the airport.
For drop-off and parking, find out where your airline’s check-in location will be:
  • WestJet (domestic) – Doors 1 – 4
  • Flair and others (domestic) – Doors 6 – 7
  • Air Canada (domestic) – Doors 8-10
  • Air Transat (domestic) – Doors 16-17

Word of the Day:

Ample: more than enough
