Fort McMurray International Airport Terminals
The airport includes two terminals.
The sizable main terminal (opened in 2014) can be found on the south side of the runway and is used for commercial passenger service. The primary terminal (opened in 1986) is conveniently located on the north side of the runway and was reconstructed and re-opened in 2014 only to serve corporate flyers, workforce charters, and cargo.
The main terminal building offers services for commercial travelers and houses CBSA, where international passengers and returning Canadians enter the country. The building is about 15,000 m2 (160,000 sq ft), or the equivalent size of 2.5 Canadian football fields. The terminal includes eight aircraft parking stands and four-passenger bridges.

On April 22, 2015, the airport received first place in the “Best Food & Beverage Program – Medium/Small Airport” section at the Airports Council International-North America Excellence in Airport Concessions Awards.
The North Terminal was primarily built for both private and commercial passenger services. After the opening of the new terminal in 2014, the building was reconstructed and re-opened as the North Terminal to serve corporate fliers, workforce charters, and cargo.
The North Terminal supports approximately 250,000 workers a year or 20 percent of all airport passengers annually. Charter carriers, including Flair Air, Enerjet, Canadian North, and North Cariboo Air, operate through the terminal. The terminal provides retail, beverage and food, and car hire services. The facility also handles air cargo operations like a dedicated cargo depot, storage, sorting space, and ramp space for cargo aircraft.
