EIA welcomes home Canadian troops

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is a proud supporter of our
Canadian Forces troops. Most recently, EIA was honoured to host
Canadian Forces troops returning home from tours of duty in
Afghanistan. Seventeen flights returned to Canada as part of
Canadian Forces Rotation 5, which began in January 2008, and all
but one flight returned home via EIA. About 2,500 soldiers were
involved in Rotation 5, most of them from Edmonton.
