Fort McMurray Airport Information
Fort McMurray Airport (IATA: YMM) is situated 7 NM (13 km; 8.1 mi) southeast of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. The airport is planning an expansion as it is seeing 560,000 people and 70,000 takeoffs and landings a year, which is eight times the traffic it was designed to handle. The expansion plan includes a new terminal and a second runway, along with more gates and stores, tripling its current size.
The airport was the busiest in Canada, 31st overall, without air traffic control in 2007, having only a Flight Service Station and the 17th busiest by passengers. That year the airport handled 68,924 aircraft movements. As of September 2008, given continued air growth at the airport, NAV CANADA, the country's provider of air traffic services, opened an air traffic control tower for limited hours during the day. As of May 7, 2009, the control hours will be expanded to the final service configuration, which will meet the demand of the airport. In the five years between 2002 and 2007 the airport was one of the fastest growing in Canada.
