Best year ever for Edmonton International Airport with more than 8.2 million travellers served in 2018 | EIA Corporate

Passenger Service

There were multiple new air services offerings to and from EIA in 2018.

Air Canada commenced daily non-stop service between Edmonton and San Francisco and Air Canada Rouge began non-stop service to Las Vegas.
WestJet’s winter schedule includes flights from Edmonton to Huatulco, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun.
Flair Airlines announced new Canadian routes as well as a major expansion including Las Vegas, Phoenix-Mesa, Orlando, Miami and Palm Springs. Flair announced EIA as the airline’s headquarters and main connecting hub.
Swoop began new daily service to Las Vegas and twice-weekly service to Phoenix-Mesa and domestic service to Abbotsford, Winnipeg and Hamilton.
Overall passenger counts grew by 5.8 per cent over 2017’s numbers. The region continued to support the non-stop services of Icelandair to Reykjavik, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to Amsterdam and the seasonal WestJet service to London-Gatwick. Domestic travel increased by 6.3 per cent over the previous year. Significantly, the number of EIA sun destination travellers increased by 9.6% per cent and US travel experienced a 9.9 per cent increase in 2018.

To serve this growing number of travellers, EIA expanded its domestic/international security screening area, and began the installation of new CATSA Plus screening systems. The first CATSA Plus line is now operational and these systems will replace all the old CATSA screening systems on EIA’s domestic/international side in 2019.
