Today is the official opening day of the new International Terminal. Unfortunately I didn't have time to explore it too much today but I was amazed at the size and architecture of it, especially in comparison with the existing terminal. Definitely looking forward to flying out of here some day.

Cathay Pacific Cargo has ended operations at YYC. The operations ended due to the route being non-profitable. 

Here is the last Cathay 747 to leave YYC at 0420 this morning. Registration, B-LJL as flight CX95. The tower said "Hope to see you again" before departing Runway 17R for Anchorage.
