Continued recovery seen for local aviation
21 Mar 2022
Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is forecasting a return to higher passenger levels in 2022, as more flights to more places begin taking off starting this spring and into the summer.
Starting in April and into the summer, more than a dozen destinations will either begin new service or have increased service from EIA from multiple airlines. This includes several American cities as well as more opportunities to see Canada. After all the new routes have begun, EIA will have 54 non-stop destinations, a rapid recovery from the 11 routes available in the spring of 2021. This increased service from airlines shows optimism in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region and Alberta’s economic recovery.
