Edmonton Airport Guide to Edmonton International Airport (YEG)

Terminal Edmonton Airport

Edmonton Airport was first opened on 1960 serving as an arch hangar. Later, on 1963, the first passenger terminal was inaugurated, which is nowadays the north terminal. 

In 1998, Edmonton Airport underwent a total redevelopment, which included the construction of the current south terminal and a central hall. Also, in 2009, a control tower was added to the airport facilities. Another expansion was done in 2013 and it is expected another one to be finished in 2018. 

Nowadays the airport has one integrated passenger terminal, including the north and the south terminal under same roof.

The airport is served by domestic US airlines, connecting the Canadian city with several US destinations, and major airlines to worldwide destinations.
