For immediate release

Following last night’s Council vote, The Calgary Airport Authority will be undertaking discussions with the City about the integration of an Airport Trail tunnel into our Runway Development Project.

A number of complicated and critical items still need to be addressed with regard to the tunnel, and we are hopeful we will be able to come to a satisfactory agreement with the City on those items.

Construction of the new runway at Calgary International Airport is required to meet current and future air travel and cargo demand. The Calgary Airport Authority is committed to having the new runway in service as quickly as possible while working with the City to try to accommodate integration of the Airport Trail tunnel.
