The newest, longest runway in Canada officially opened in Calgary. After three years of construction and a $620-million price tag, the new runway is being touted as an investment in the city's future — one that will let it handle more direct flights from destinations around the world. "Calgary making the investment in the runway they've got will ensure we will be players not just this year, [but] for the next 70, 80, 100 years," said Rick Erickson, an airline analyst.
