RE: Optimal route to cover banf and Jasper
you could fly out of edmonton but the road from jasper to edmonton is not especially scenic so i probably wouldn't.
hwy 93 is beautiful and i doube you'll regret driving it both ways.
however, another option that i'd probably choose would be...the calgary airport is on the north end of town. so it is very easy to leave there and head north on hwy 2 until just before red deer. turn west on hwy 11 which goes through rockey mountain house. stay on this road and it will intercept hwy 93. then take that to jasper.
then when you return to banff from jasper, you can drive the entire length of 93.
