The Calgary International Airport is consistently ranked as one of the best airports in North America for overall passenger convenience and is just 20 minutes from the downtown core. In 2016, the airport unveiled their $2.1 billion expansion, including a new International Terminal.
Getting to Calgary by car is easy with connections to several major highway systems.
