The majority of Canada's national, regional and local airports are owned by either the federal, provincial or local government. In recent years, the responsibility for airport operations has been passing to private authorities under long-term lease agreements. These authorities have been instrumental in expanding, upgrading and modernizing Canada's airports to world-class standards.

The Calgary and Edmonton International airports are the 4th and 5th busiest in Canada respectively and have a combined passenger volume of over 20 million. Calgary is the hub for air traffic on the prairies, while Edmonton is the "Gateway to the North." Both have 24-hour cargo service and modern cargo terminals run by Air Canada and International Aviation Terminals Inc.
