Sustainability requires strong financial health, which is one of Vancouver 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 our ratings at AA and AA (low), respectively, in 2017. Other than Hong Kong International Airport, which is rated at AA+, YVR’s AA rating is the second-highest airport rating in the world. Los Angeles International Airport is the only other airport with a AA rating.
Almost half of YVR’s revenue comes from non-aeronautical sources. This includes sales of our award-winning BORDERXPRESS™ kiosks, parking and tenant rent. We reinvest this revenue back into the airport, keeping costs low for our airline partners and passengers.
