Art and Architecture
For many visitors, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) provides the first and last impression of British Columbia with art and architecture reflective of the province’s diverse landscape and people. YVR currently houses the largest collection of Northwest Coast Native art in the world.
Vancouver International Airport is home to two satellite Vancouver Aquarium Marine Exhibits – a 114,000-litre main aquarium and a smaller 1,800-litre jellyfish aquarium – that house a rich collection of marine life native to British Columbia.
For more information on the main aquarium, including its many animals, visit ocean.org/yvr.
Ground Run-up Enclosure
Vancouver Airport Authority announced details of Canada’s first Ground Run-up Enclosure (GRE), a state-of-the-art facility designed to minimize noise from engine run-ups that are conducted as part of regular aircraft maintenance work.
Maintaining a safe and secure airfield for aircraft and passengers is the focus of everything we do at Vancouver International Airport, including Vancouver Airport Authority’s snow response program.
