Airport South

Airport South is a unique reflection of our history and province. In addition to being the location of the original airport, it connects passengers to a range of locations that demonstrate our diverse economy and people. It includes the South Terminal Building, the public Floatplane Facility on the Fraser River, and provides an aviation hub for regional and coastal air services, helicopter operations, corporate charters, sport fishing camps and aerospace facilities.

YVR’s South Terminal connected passengers and communities across British Columbia to the world in 2017, with float plane operators such as Harbour Air and Seair Seaplanes and regional carriers including Pacific Coastal Airlines. A total of 475,859 passengers used the South Terminal and Floatplane Terminals, an increase of 10% over 2016.

In 2017, we continued to improve Airport South, upgrading crosswalks and watermain infrastructure. Airside, we installed new high-mast LED lamps that increased lighting levels and safety, all with a reduction in energy consumption.

Passengers departing from the South Terminal pay a reduced AIF of $5, receive free shuttle service to and from YVR’s Main Terminal Building and enjoy the superior customer care and passenger experience for which YVR is recognized worldwide.
