Topic: "EIA Overview and Behind-the-Scenes”
Tom Ruth, President and CEO of Edmonton International Airport shares details about the inner workings of Canada’s fifth-busiest airport, focusing specifically on its business model, air service and commercial development, as well as some interesting “behind the scenes” information.
Edmonton Airports manages Edmonton International Airport - Canada's fastest growing and largest major airport by area. Edmonton International serves over 7.5 million passengers per year and offers non-stop service to 60 destinations across Canada, the US and overseas. Our vision is very simple and clear; "More flights to more places." In addition to EIA’s passenger operations, Edmonton Airports also oversees EIA’s air cargo operations, based out of the airport’s new multi-tenant ‘Cargo Village.’ It also manages Villeneuve Airport, a general aviation facility located northwest of Edmonton which serves as the primary flight-training facility for the Capital Region.
