City Centre Airport - Where Business Takes Flight
The ECCA plays a vital role in making Edmonton one of Canada’s leading health centers. It is a hub for air ambulance, medivac, organ transplants and other essential health services for all of Alberta, the Northwest Territories, British Columbia and Saskatchewan. It also contributes to the safety and security of our province. The Edmonton Police Service, RCMP and the Canadian Forces are all major users of the facility,
For others it may be a charter business flight to a remote destination or a northern community where scheduled service is not available or unavailable when needed. For business time is money and many business people depend upon convenient access to our capital city. They bring money, jobs and opportunities to Edmontonians.
Some who depended upon the City Centre Airport in the past are now bypassing Edmonton in favor of Calgary for their business activities. Our loss is Calgary's gain.
Gateway to the North
Edmonton has had an enduring slogan--"Gateway to the North." This slogan has lasted for over 70 years and although many in Edmonton no longer think it is relevant people in Norther Communities still look at the Edmonton City Centre Airport as their gateway to Alberta's Capital City.
Residents of northern communities use the City Centre Airport extensively. It is a medical link and a vital transportation link to their Alberta Government.
