Fort McMurray Mini Guide

Who Travels to Fort McMurray?
Many of the passengers on the flights to Fort McMurray are oil workers flying in for their shifts in the Athabasca Oil Fields. Keen to show a softer face, Fort McMurray has recently been promoting tourism to the region offering stunning views of the northern lights during the winter, skiing on pristine pistes and linking with its main business, tours of the oil sands. You can even buy vials of the oil laden sand to take home.

Fort McMurray Airport

How Easy is it to get to Fort McMurray Airport?
All flights, with the exception of a seasonal holiday charter route to Mexico, are domestic so overseas travellers or those from the US will have to connect to Fort McMurray via a hub. From the UK it’s possible to fly to Toronto’s Pearson Airport with several carriers or for a more circuitous route you can connect in Vancouver. The eight miles from the airport to the town are managed by taxi or bus but most people choose to rent a hire car so they have flexibility during their stay.

Winter at Fort McMurray Airport

What is the Airport Like?
The airport is small and very overcrowded as it’s currently handling nearly nine times the passengers it was created for. The airport authority is currently acquiring land to build a new terminal south of the existing one which will be better able to serve its needs. For now you’ll have to put up with long queues and frustrations at the airport despite them doing the best they can to manage them. Facilities at the airport are also inadequate for the number of travellers with only an outlet of Subway and a small café called Live Café which serves hot and cold drinks plus light snacks. There is only one retail outlet, a mixed shop called Muna’s Souvenir Gifts which mainly consists of oil based souvenirs and local native handicrafts.
