How to Fly to Jasper National Park

Most visitors to Jasper National Park arrive via either Edmonton International Airport (YEG) or Calgary International Airport (YYC). This is a brief guide to the airports and how these 2 Alberta, Canada airports fit into Jasper National Park vacation itineraries.

Both Edmonton Airport and Calgary Airport are large, full-service international airports served by several airlines and car rental agencies. Their locations make them good choices for various types of Jasper National Park vacation itineraries.

Edmonton International Airport

Edmonton International Airport (YEG) serves 50 non-stop domestic, U.S. and international destinations. I found it to be an easy airport to navigate. Just get off the plane and follow the clear signs to baggage pick-up.


* The * next to the airlines or car rental agency denotes that they serve both Edmonton and Calgary. For those doing a “4 corners trip” (visiting 1 Edmonton, 2 Jasper, 3 Banff and 4 Calgary – or reverse), it is often cheaper to use the same airline and do an open-jaw flight. An open-jaw flight is when you flying into one airport and out another. Sometimes this is simply called a “multi-city” flight. You’ll need a car agency at both airports too. I like this form of flying because it is more travel for the money, usually the same amount of money.

Most of the major airlines and several regionals fly into Edmonton International Airport on a regular basis. Some fly in several times a day while others only a few times a week. These are the airlines:

  • Air Canada/Jazz *
  • Air North *
  • Air Transat *
  • Alaska Airlines *
  • Canadian North *
  • Central Mountain Air *
  • Delta Airlines *
  • First Air
  • Horizon Air *
  • Integra Air
  • Martinair *
  • Mexicana Airlines
  • My Travel
  • Northwest Airlines *
  • Northwestern Air Lease
  • SkyService *
  • Sunwing Airlines *
  • U.S. Airways *
  • United Airlines *
  • WestJet *

The rental car agencies in Edmonton Airport are Avis*, Hertz*, Budget*, Thrifty*, and National*.

Driving from Edmonton Airport to Jasper National Park

The drive from Edmonton to Jasper is an easy 3 hours and 27 minutes to 4 hours with a few places to stop for a stretch or meal along the way – like Edson and Hinton. Highway 16 is straight and flat from Edmonton all the way to Hinton. There’s little traffic outside of Edmonton. After Hinton, the Canadian Rockies start creeping up and the scenery changes to snow-capped mountains.

If your flight arrives late in the evening, it may be better to spend the night in Edmonton to get a good night’s rest. Then, do the Edmonton to Jasper drive in the morning. If time permits in Edmonton, the West Edmonton Mall is an adventure in itself.

Another option is to split the Edmonton to Jasper drive in two. The first night, drive halfway to Jasper, staying the night in the small town of Edson, Alberta. Edson has plenty of hotels and dining options. Then, wake up early and you’ll only be 1 1/2 to 2 hours from the Jasper National Park east entrance and Miette Hot Springs.

Calgary International Airport

Calgary, Alberta is best known for the Calgary Stampede, the famous Canadian stampede/festival that runs for 10 days every July. Calgary stays fun the rest of the year with museums, dining, the Calgary Tower, Calgary Zoo, Calgary Olympic Park, and many other activities.

Calgary Airport is about 1 1/2 hours to Banff village. Lake Louise is a short drive from that. Spend some time in Banff National Park and then go to Jasper National Park, adjacent to Banff on the north. Then head back to Calgary or head east to Edmonton.

Cargary Airport Rental Car Agencies

The following are the on-site rental car agencies at Calgary International Airport:

  • Alamo, Avis*, Budget*, Dollar Rent-A-Car, Enterprise, Hertz*, National* and Thrifty*

I’ve had good luck with for car rentals and have scored prices below Orbitz, Travelocity and the likes. HotWire seems to lack a way to request open-jaw/multi-city car rentals though. is a place to find good multi-city car rental options.

Before you buy airline tickets

Plan to have a great time. But be prepared in the slight chance tickets need to be canceled.

First, be cognizant of flight cancellation rules. Ticket rules vary greatly – with low price tickets having the least flexibility. If you end up needing to change dates, sometimes the terms and conditions impose a minor penalty. Other times, a ticket’s terms and conditions can say “no cancellation, no changes, no refunds.”

Next, have peace of mind. An easy way to have peace of mind is to purchase some form of flight insurance. While exact rules vary, most flight insurance policies provide reimbursement in the event of sickness or certain types of emergencies. Some airlines and flight search websites offer it. Others don’t. There are also independent travel insurance providers who provide extended/custom coverage at a price. I’ve paid around $20 per ticket for insurance in the past.

Enjoy your Jasper National Park and Alberta, Canada travel adventure.

  • The price of stretch film depends on many factors, as well as on any other product. The main component in the price of stretch film is the price of oil. Not just the price of oil on the stock exchange, but also the forecasts of analysts of commodity exchanges about the course of oil prices.
    Why is the price of oil? Raw materials for stretch films, as well as other polythenes, are made from oil… this is if we speak in simple language.
    The production of raw materials for stretch film is a separate topic. Accordingly, oil refiners (manufacturers of raw materials for stretch film) raise the prices of raw materials.
    Another important factor in changing the price of stretch film is the cost of energy resources (electricity, water and other components).
    The production of stretch film is very energy-intensive, about 4-6 MW of energy is needed for 3-5 lines.
