A nticipation is building for the opening of the new International Terminal at Calgary International Airport (YYC). Set to open in Fall 2016, the terminal doubles the size of the existing facility. Five storeys high, it will encompass nearly two million sq. ft. of additional space at YYC. This new facility will be fi lled with light from 5,000 sq. m of skylights. Travellers using the new terminal will experience the Calgary premiere of Wolfgang Puck, the Belgian Beer Café and local foodie favourites including the Vin Room Airport, Hana Sushi and Spolumbo's Fine Foods & Deli. An additional 50 shops and services can take care of any item that travellers need. The terminal will feature 24 new aircraft gates with room for future expansion to 36 gates and a Crisplant baggage system, which has the capacity to process 4,000 bags per hour. The new terminal is also leading the way in envi- ronmentally sustainable practices, with geothermal energy to heat and cool the building. A new secure Connections Corridor enhances the effi ciency for passengers who will need to move between terminals. The corridor allows passengers to stay behind the secure area and transition from concourse to concourse with ease. The novel YYC LINK is a Canadian-made electric vehicle that can transport 10 passengers quickly and effi ciently— perfect for those tight connecting fl ights! The corridor will have four stations for the YYC LINK to load and unload passengers and will also feature eight moving sidewalks. yyc.com READY FOR TAKEOFF THE INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL AT YYC Photo: Calgary International Airport Now is the time to re-discover Calgary for your next meeting and experience premier accommodations and surroundings at the Fairmont Palliser.
