Fly through your shopping at EIA

December 4, 2012 (Edmonton, AB) – This holiday season Edmonton International Airport (EIA) won’t just be the place you have to go through to get to your vacation: This year it might just be the highlight of your vacation! EIA’s newly renovated terminal has made for a whole new passenger experience and we can’t wait to show the Capital Region everything we have in store.

Shopping and Dining

This year you won’t need to haul presents to the airport; with 36 stylish shops and services you will NEVER be stuck for a gift idea at EIA, and together with 25 tasty restaurants you can just eat, shop and relax. Just get here early and your last-minute holiday shopping is in hand. 

You won’t even have to wrap your presents. In the spirit of the holidays, once you get through security EIA volunteers will be just like Santa’s elves and wrap your gifts for you, for free!

Art and Entertainment

We have performers to keep you entertained - choirs, singers, and stiltwalkers will all be here to put you in the holiday spirit. You may even meet Santa while you’re enjoying our great food and shopping offerings!   

EIA has a selection of art displays that would make any gallery proud! We will even be offering classes to budding artists on how to make their own festive arts and crafts, every morning from 8:00 am to 10:00 am by Santa’s Storyland (Gate 56).
