Fort McMurray International Airport

Fort McMurray International Airport (YMM) is located about 13 kilometres (eight miles) from Downtown Fort McMurray. YMM is the gateway to the Athabasca Oil Sands and is Northern Alberta's largest airport.

Fort McMurray International Airport's new terminal opened June 9, 2014, elevating air travel for the Wood Buffalo region to a whole new altitude. The $258-million facility is five times larger than the former terminal, allowing passengers to move more efficiently and enjoy more room and comfort.

The approximately 15,000-square-metre (161,458-square-foot) terminal can accommodate 1.5 million passengers a year and has:

  • Four aircraft bridges
  • Two baggage carousels
  • Over 2,200 powered parking stalls
  • An award-winning food and beverage program
  • Barrier-free access for persons with disabilities
  • Large south-facing courtyard providing an outdoor visiting area for passengers

YMM is owned and operated by the Fort McMurray Airport Authority, a community-based, not-for-profit organization.
