Sustainability requires strong financial health, which is one of the Airport Authority’s fundamental responsibilities. Our sound financial planning is reflected in our consistently high credit rating, which is among the best in the world. Both Standard & Poor’s and Dominion Bond Rating Service confirmed the Airport Authority’s ratings at AA and AA (low), respectively, in 2015. Other than Hong Kong International Airport, which is rated at AAA, the Airport Authority’s AA rating is the second-highest airport rating in the world. Los Angeles International Airport and Massachusetts Port Authority are the only other airports with a AA rating.
Did you know? Almost half of YVR’s revenue comes from non-aeronautical sources. This includes sales of our award-winning BORDERXPRESS™ kiosks, revenue earned through the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Centre, parking and tenant rent. We reinvest this revenue back into the airport, keeping costs low for our airline partners and passengers.
