New event permit application for special occurrences at YYC

Bringing special visitors to the airport? Doing some filming? Making a ruckus? Or just something that’s out of the ordinary for daily airport operations? These things are considered special events and require an event permit.

A new event permit application is now required for all events on airport property. This will capture all the details about an event and ensure they are properly recorded, tracked and reviewed by all necessary Airport Authority departments including safety, security, operations and environment. This assessment helps to ensure all airport and government regulations are being met.

Examples of events include tours, grand openings, filming, new route launches, staff lunches, BBQ’s, holiday or special function activities.

How does it work?

  • Four weeks’ notice is required for events, so plan accordingly and ensure your permit is submitted on time.
  • Fill out the event application form found at, under Calgary Airport Authority and Forms and Applications. Provide as much detail as possible.
  • When your event is approved, you will receive a permit emailed from Until you receive that email, you should consider your application still under review.
  • If you have amendments to your event after you have submitted your application, you can email or reply to your already approved event permit.

Thank you for your assistance in keeping YYC safe and secure for all employees and guests.
