Calgary Airport Maintenance

You may notice some differences in airport flight activities through the summer at YYC.

YYC Community Engagement had the following to say:

At YYC Calgary International Airport runways and taxiways require periodic maintenance to ensure we can continue to safely and efficiently operate the airport.
Pavement rehabilitation is required for Runway 35L/17R (west runway). We will be closing this runway on selected weekends from Friday at 11 p.m. until Sunday at 4 p.m., to complete some of this work. Scheduled closure dates are as follow:
· Friday, May 26 – Sunday, May 28
· Friday, June 9 – Sunday, June 11
· Friday, June 16 – Sunday, June 18
· Friday, June 9 – Sunday, June 11

All dates are weather-dependent and subject to change.

Community members may notice a change in aircraft flight activity as a result of the runway closure. During the closure dates, the majority of aircraft will depart and arrive on Runway 35R/17L (east runway).

Please share this with your community members and do not hesitate to contact YYC Community Engagement if you have any questions.
