TOUR ONE: Air Side Operations & Sustainability
Guided by Edmonton Airports Staff, take a behind the scenes tour of air side operations with a focus on our winter ops. Edmonton International Airport is the world’s most northerly major airport and with operations 24/7, 365 days a year, the winter operations are state of the art. This includes sustainability initiatives such as the management of glycol via a Stormwater Containment & Control System (SCCS) and a Subsurface Aerated Biofilter Treatment Facility (SABTF).
TOUR TWO: Land Side
Guided by Edmonton Airports Staff, take a tour of the developing area around the Airport including Landside operations and aeronautically compatible commercial development locations. The developing commercial node (Premium Outlet Collection Mall, Costco, Century Mile horse Racing Track & Casino, Fairfield Inn, etc.) will be highlighted. The tour will also include various non-aeronautical facilities such as Aurora Cannabis, as well as support to air and ground cargo operations.
