To ensure that passengers at YYC, one of Canada’s busiest airports, provides the highest quality experience for its passengers, it is important that the Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) in both the International Terminal and Domestic operate as one system to provide seamless connections for baggage between domestic, international and transborder flights.
With the new International Terminal completed and in operation for over a year, and with over 16 million passengers (and rising) being processed per year at the airport, The Calgary Airport Authority is working with YYC and Crisplant (a leading innovator of baggage handling systems) to update the Domestic terminal with the faster and more energy-efficient baggage movement systems already in use in the International Terminal.
CTV recently featured the BHS and what it is capable of, check it out here: https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1314757
Sunwest Aviation is a private jet charter with a fleet of 45 aircraft, including 16 jets. GEC worked with Sunwest Aviation to develop a new hangar and passenger/business centre. The facility includes 10,220 square meters of hangar space and approximately 6,000 square meters of support facilities including office and administration spaces, departure lounges, facilities for in-flight food service, and a restaurant.
GEC is re-designing the passenger experience. The YYC Terminal Connectivity Program, featuring the YYC LINK ™ and the Connections Corridor, is the front page and cover story for the July / August 2017 issue of Airport Focus International.

This past Monday, October 31 was the much anticipated unveiling of the largest expansion project in YYC history, with the opening of the new International Terminal Building. This event also revealed one of GEC's latest collaborations with YYC: the YYC LINK & passenger shuttle system, a 700m long multi-modal airside passenger link which includes the YYC Link Route, moving walkways, and traditional corridors.
The YYC LINK passenger shuttle will physically connect passengers between the 5 Concourse, easing the process of navigating the airport and minimizing passenger travel times. Designed from the ground-up, our team has developed a unique design for the system that includes custom barriers, finishes, and lighting, and a vehicle that represents innovation in internal transportation at YYC.The passenger fleet includes 20 shuttle vehicles, each with a capacity to carry 10 passengers with their carry-on luggage. By design, vehicles will be leaving each station every two minutes on average. The service is supported by technology that will inform passengers when to expect the next vehicle at their station, and how long it will take them to get their destination.
Next time you’re at the airport, take a seat and enjoy the ease and convenience of the new YYC experience!
