​"Not long after the Stampede Parade, we had a big announcement with the prime minister at the airport. We now have funding from all three orders of government and YYC Calgary International Airport to do phase 2 of Airport Trail! (Phase 1 was the tunnel under the new runway... a project that was completed on time and on budget.) The completion of Airport Trail is a critical piece of Calgary’s transportation network and fully realizes the value of the Airport Trail Tunnel—a new east-west connection between Stoney Trail and Deerfoot Trail in a city that needs more east-west connections. With this one project, we are making it easier for people and goods to get to Calgary International Airport and strengthening the transportation and logistics sector of our economy. It also sets up a future rapid transit connection to the airport--a project that is on our long term plan for Calgary Transit.

This is a project I’ve been passionate about since before I was elected in 2010, and it’s incredibly special to finally see it happen."

- Mayor Naheed Nenshi​
