When 'Aviation was Young' so was YYC!
As some of you may already be aware, after 20 years in Concourse A, YYC will be decommissioning the Jeff de Boer windup toy sculptures (titled ‘When Aviation Was Young’) later this year. The decommissioning of the nostalgic art pieces is part of ongoing updates in the Domestic Terminal to enhance the guest experience for our domestic travellers – who make up 70 per cent of our traffic. YYC has gone through many changes over the past two decades, with many more to come as we prepare to welcome up to 23 million guests to our airport within the next few years.
While we are sad to see these iconic sculptures leave YYC, we hope they will find a new home where they will inspire new people and places.
Guests and Team YYC can continue to enjoy 35 public art pieces from local and international artists around the terminal, including three additional Jeff de Boer installations in Concourses D and E and the Canada Customs Hall.
