Calgary International Airport (YYC) is the main airport in the Canadian state of Alberta. YCC handles nearly 18 million Calgary departures (passengers) annually, making it Canada’s fourth-largest airport for passenger traffic.
Calgary Airport has the longest runway in Canada of 14,000 feet to process Calgary flight departures. The length of the runway has to do with the height of the airport. Due to the lower air pressure, aircraft must approach at a higher approach speed.
