Edmonton International Airport

EIA is one of only two Canadian airports that have been labelled an “aerotropolis”, which is an emerging form of urban development comprised of aviation-intensive businesses and related enterprises that are developed at, and immediately around, an airport. Aerotropolis development typically consists of entertainment uses, convention centers, retail amenities and hospitality uses along with logistics development and office buildings. Public transit options are another unique characteristic of EIA's aerotropolis environment.


The EIA location is the newest strategic distribution location in the Edmonton region for the following reasons:
  1. Cluster of on-site amenities rarely seen in an industrial park including new commercial, retail, office, entertainment and hotel options to increase overall employee satisfaction and experience
  2. Lower land costs
  3. Lower real estate taxes
  4. Less traffic congestion and improved access to highways
  5. Connectivity to public transportation
  6. More responsive permitting timelines as the controlling authority are EIA and the County
  7. On-site emergency response including dedicated fire rescue and dedicated police patrols
  8. Land is zoned, serviced and immediately ready for development
  9. Shipping facilitation through EIA thanks to Foreign Trade Zone benefits
  10. Part of a growing and vibrant community, building an aerotropolis for today and the future​
