YYC to get major upgrades as part of new strategic direction

CALGARY – The Calgary Airport Authority has unveiled new plans for YYC Calgary International Airport that include everything from food trucks to faster security screening.

Dubbed ‘North Star’, the new strategic direction will focus on elevating guest experiences that are inspired by the things that make Calgary and southern Alberta unique. Upon completion, guests will find new retail and service offerings, improvements to processes within the airport as well as enhancements to the domestic terminal.

According to the Calgary Herald, the plans also include bringing in local breweries and electric food trucks over the next three or four years. Guests will be able to navigate throughout the airport using their iPhone, as well as pre-order food and picking it up upon arrival at their gate.

“We are thrilled about the promise of our North Star and the positive impact this will have on our guests for many years to come,” said Bob Sartor, President and CEO of The Calgary Airport Authority. “By placing our guests at the heart of everything we do, creating an experience that is reflective of the city and region we serve, and by providing the best value to our airline partners, we will be a key economic engine well into the future.”

Improvements in the domestic terminal have already begun, and the new identity system is on display in the domestic check-in areas, soon to expand to the improvements underway in domestic arrivals.
