Calgary Airport Authority Invests in First-Rate Taxi Facility at YYC

January 28, 2015   |  

The Calgary Airport Authority is pleased to introduce a new taxi-staging facility at Calgary International Airport (YYC). The 3,400 square foot building was developed as a multi-functional facility in consultation with the current on-demand taxi and sedan service provider at YYC.

The new building features an open lunch room with lots of natural light and plenty of tables and seating. It offers taxi drivers a great space for relaxation and an opportunity to recharge while they are working at Canada’s third busiest airport.

“The taxi-staging building will be a welcome addition for taxi drivers, who are here to serve the millions of passengers that travel through YYC every year,” said Shawnah Whittaker, General Manager, Ground Transportation and Parking for The Calgary Airport Authority.

Taxis and sedans serve thousands of customers at the airport every day. More than 1,700 outbound trips are made by taxis daily, along with approximately 300 daily outbound trips made by sedan drivers.
