Air Access Air Access

Direct access to Alberta via our three international airports – Edmonton, Calgary and Fort McMurray – is a priority to increase inbound tourism from our key domestic and international markets.

In support of this, the Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation led discussions at Canadian Council of Tourism Ministers on improvements to Canada's air policy regime. Alberta recommends actions for the province and Canada as a whole to be appealing as a fly-to-destinations for both visitors and business travellers.

The Tourism Division also undertakes strategic assessments to guide the activities of tourism partners relative to developing new air services with markets of strategic priority for inbound tourism, trade and investment.
