Propelling our economy

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is a major economic driver in our community, with an economic output of $3.2 billion and providing 26,000 jobs in the Edmonton Metro Region.

In 2018, 2,000 jobs were added to YEG’s Airport City, thanks to developments like the Premium Outlet Collection-YEG and Costco.

Airport City propels new jobs, tourism, and economic diversification – and creates a destination around YEG for entertainment, e-commerce, retail, hospitality, cargo/logistics, bio-pharma, light manufacturing, and many other industries.
