About The Airport

Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is Canada’s second busiest and North America’s closest West Coast airport to Asia and Europe.

Voted Best Airport in North America for the last 7 consecutive years (Skytrax), YVR surpassed 20 million passengers in 2015 for the first time.  With over 70 gates, 56 airlines and 124 destinations, we are renowned for our West Coast sense of place, exceptional customer service and world class shopping.  YVR maintains efficient, 24-hour operations and is a common-use, Category 3 facility capable of handling the world’s largest aircraft.

On January 1 2016, YVR introduced a new five year rates and charges program, ConnectYVR, lowering airline landing and terminal fees by 15 per cent. This program has positioned YVR to offer the lowest rates and charges of any competing airport in North America.

26 minutes via the Canada Line rail link to downtown Vancouver, we are committed to creating an airport that British Columbia can be proud of.  A premier global gateway, local economic generator and community contributor.
