YYC Annual General Meeting - Expansion Planning Continues

The Calgary Airport Authority held their Annual General Meeting last week which highlighted the 2008 fiscal year and also looked to the future.

For 2009 $220 Million has been earmarked for infrastructure projects. These include the newest parkade east of the existing parkade, concourse C baggage hall, Preboard screening and airfield improvements.

Despite the economic downturn the planning and design of the 4th runway (parallel to 16/34) east of the present Barlow Trail and the International Facilities Project will continue. Since major construction would still be a few years out (2011-15) the projects could change or be shelved altogether depending on economic conditions.

For a complete overvier, the Calgary Airport Authority has a presentation available on their website, you can download it here (PDF)
