Anyone hoping for a goodbye or hello at the Calgary airport will have to do so at the car.
To ensure physical distancing, the Calgary Airport Authority is limiting who can enter the Calgary International Airport. Only passengers with a valid boarding pass, and on-duty airport employees, will be allowed to enter the building.
“Steps are in place to reduce the # of people in-terminal & limit the spread of COVID-19,” tweeted the @FlyYYC Twitter account.
The Calgary Airport Authority is limiting the number of people in the building with these new measures. This effort has been a recommendation at the Calgary airport to ensure physical distancing since June, but as of Monday, January 18, it is mandatory.

There will be exceptions to this new policy, still allowing certain non-travellers to enter the Calgary airport. If a minor is travelling alone, they will be allowed to be accompanied by someone. Any travellers with accessibility needs who need a support person with them will be permitted to do so. Also, any guests of the Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel will have access to the airport.
The first mandate of the Calgary Airport Authority is to “manage and operate the airports for which we are responsible in a safe, secure and efficient manner.”
