Big plans to serve a growing population

Our region is growing.

The Edmonton Metro Region population is expected to nearly double from approximately 1.2 million people in 2014 to approximately 2.2 million people in 2044.

With this tremendous growth comes increased air travel and demand for new services and developments.

The EIA Master Plan, which we update every 10 years, guides the development of the airport facilities and services over a 25 year time frame.

It is an adaptable blueprint that guides how and where we expand and develop our services while keeping under consideration the changing economic, social, environmental and regulatory conditions at the time.

Throughout the Master Planning process we seek input from our stakeholders and the public to incorporate into our long-term vision and planning efforts.
