Calgary Airport is 9 kilometres from the centre of Calgary. View on Map.
Calgary is served by Calgary Airport, also commonly referred to as Calgary, Calgary Intl, McCall Field. The airport code is YYC.
It takes about 30 minutes to get to downtown Calgary and the trip to Banff will take about 90 minutes. The airport offers a wide array of ground transportation options for both destinations. Options like taxis, Calgary transit buses, and sedans can all be found on the Arrivals Level of the terminal building.
Calgary Airport offers the LINK Passenger Shuttle. This shuttle allows passengers to move from Concourse A to Concourse D/E without leaving the security area and thus needing to go through a security checkpoint again when changing terminals. The trip takes only 5 minutes and the shuttle can carry up to 10 passengers.
Calgary Airport has something called the Connections Corridor. This corridor links the secure areas of the airport so travelers can move between the terminal buildings in the secure areas, meaning there is no need to pass through security again. The corridor can be crossed by a pedestrian walkway, a moving walkway, or by the LINK passenger shuttle.
Calgary Airport is very accommodating of those traveling with pets, and there are dog relief areas outside of the terminal buildings. These three areas are located outside of the arrivals level at Doors 1, 9, and 17. There is also an indoor pet relief area in Concourse B next to Gate B34 in the Domestic Terminal building.

Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"

Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."

I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said.

Pros: "The seating on the airbus 319 in main cabin is very cramped. Prefer Westjet 737. Will use them in future."
Cons: "Hey there good Air Canada folks. I'm a full-time, working, touring musician. I enjoy flying your airline overall, but touring with an acoustic guitar and/or a banjo is constantly stressful. There are clear guidelines about your policies for musical instruments posted on your website, yet your employees never seem to know them. Please have something posted for them at the gates, so I don't have to convince them EVERY TIME that it's okay for me to carry on my instrument in a soft case. A side note: Since airlines started charging for baggage, people are desperate to carry on as much as possible. This means there is always a struggle now against people with a bunch of clothing and personal items in their rolling luggage, to fit the instrument that is my LIVELIHOOD on the plane. Please find a way to make touring with Air Canada easier for musicians. At least return to gate check policies."

Cons: "Disgusted that baggage wasn't included in the ticket price. I've taken the route 6 times, and this is the first time baggage wasn't included in my ticket. Seats were very small and cramped, with very little room. Not enough space in the overhead lockers for baggage which made cramped seats even more cramped. The TV didn't work either so was a long flight with little entertainment."

Pros: "The crew and counter check in were provided excellent customer service. Very impressed."
Cons: "My son and I are both 6’5” and the seat are too close together for leg comfort. Flying used to be about COMFORT for passengers. I paid for our seating thinking we would get extra legroom with emergency seating, I was disappointed."
Cons: "Travelled from Toronto,CA to Lyon, FR and wasn't pleased with service, food, no coffee available plus drinks were limited. And on top of that when I arrived in Lyon, my baggage wasn't delivered from Toronto (was told at baggage claim desk). I paid $70 dollars for something that didn't get delivered."

Pros: "Boarding the plane was well organised."
Cons: "We boarded in time to fly at 10:05pm, however 7 passengers didn't turn up until almost 11pm. We weren't offered any snacks or drinks whilst waiting. Our 7 year old son spent most of this time desperate for the toilet but we weren't allowed. We all just wanted to go to sleep after a long day, I wanted to get to sleep because I faced 4 hours drive home after landing in London. We were served food and drinks at around midnight... I was asleep and was woken by a stewardess shouting "Would you like a drink" (not sure if she was speaking to me - but to be honest on a night flight I expected the aircrew to be a little more tactful). The cabin lights were eventually dimmed at about 1:30 for perhaps a couple of hours, when they were turned back on and we were served a slice of carrot cake for breakfast. The whole trip felt very bizarre, the opposite of the outbound trip where everything felt very special. After landing we retrieved our luggage only to find our cases were badly damaged, we've traveled with the same cases for the last five weeks during which time they have survived without a scratch."

Pros: "Great, smooth flight and landing!"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Customer service. My travel companion was seated in a different row, and mid-way through the nearly full flight, the people he was seated with claimed they felt ill and wished to lay down. My companion was asked to stand for 4 hours during the flight with nowhere else to sit while the passenger next to him took up two seats to lay down in to 'recover' rather than recline her seat like the rest of us! That was awful!!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Charge for a blanket, limits on carryon were unrealistic,no ice in drink, a crew member was cranky throughout flight,"
Cons: "Plane was freezing and had to buy a blanket."
Cons: "The flight is a night flight, so most of us are trying to sleep but we were woken up two hours before landing to be given a piece of cinnamon loaf...I would rather sleep!"
