Edmonton Airport is resuming international flights next month

We doubt that many Edmontonians are clamouring to get on a flight to Europe. But, you should know that you’ll have the option to by the end of October. The European airline KLM has announced they will resume Edmonton-Amsterdam flights, although it’s kind of a weird setup.

Because, due to federal regulations, international routes cannot fly directly to Edmonton. So, the plane will have to land in Calgary (which is legal), then, basically, hop up to Edmonton in order to takeoff. That also means that passengers have to find a different way to get to Edmonton when flying back, by the way.

Flights will begin on October 29th, and will be available twice a week. Of course, if you need to get out of the country before then, you can always just take a connecting flight through Vancouver or Toronto. But, it will be nice to have the option for essential travellers.

Because, on a final note, the government is still recommending no international leisure travel right now. Looks like this fall is all about exploring our own backyards!
