Edmonton International Airport (YEG) is the primary airport serving the Edmonton region of Alberta. The airport, which is one of the busiest in Canada, is a mini-hub for Air Canada and WestJet. Travelers from Edmonton can fly to 59 cities non-stop, including destinations across Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe.
Only two low-cost carriers operate from Edmonton International Airport: Sunwing Airlines and WestJet. Sunwing’s destinations include Cancún, Montego Bay, Puerto Vallarta and Varadero. WestJet’s destinations include Calgary, Cancún, Orlando Toronto, Vancouver and seasonal service to Kahului. If you’re traveling to a destination served by one of these airlines, you should have an easier time finding cheap flights—even if you end up booking on a full-service carrier such as Air Canada. But regardless of your destination, when looking for inexpensive airfares, try to be flexible with your travel dates and book your trip early.
Popular domestic destinations include Toronto (Air Canada and WestJet) and Vancouver (Air Canada and WestJet).
The busiest international routes from Edmonton are on flights destined to Phoenix (US Airways and WestJet), Las Vegas (WestJet), Houston (United Airlines), Seattle (United Airlines) and Denver (United Airlines).
