Edmonton City Airport Traffic

Sat Dec 07, 2013 9:15 pm

I sometimes drive through Edmonton City Airport and never seen an airplane there, but last sunday i've noticed that the runway and taxiways were cleaned from snow which probably means that the field is used. What traffic goes there and why no commuters at least ?

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Nobody flies into it anymore, as it closed on November 30th. It was supposed to close back in the 1960s when YEG opened/


Canada's oldest airfield officially closes

Wow...I grew up in Edmonton and have some very fond memories of the "Muni", as it was called back then. Back in the early 90s, I believe, the Muni actually handled more traffic than YEG and 737s were very regular visitors there. Eventually, the Edmonton City Council voted to close the Muni to commercial airline since airlines would just shuffle off Edmonton originating pax through YYC and having two airports hurt the City's drive to attract more long-haul and US routes.

Can't believe it's gone.
