New Routes and Services
YVR’s routes and services continued to grow across its domestic, transborder (U.S.) and international sectors in 2013. WestJet Encore inaugurated regional service with flights from YVR to Fort St. John, Terrace-Kitimat, and Victoria, B.C. Additionally, several new summer seasonal services inaugurated in 2013, including:
- Lufthansa’s daily service to Munich, Germany
- United Airlines’ service to Washington, D.C., and
- Delta Airlines’ daily service to JFK in New York
YVR continues to strengthen its position as the key North American gateway to Asia. China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Air China, Air Canada and Sichuan Airlines all added frequencies between YVR and destinations in China in 2013. This service increase brought YVR’s weekly tally of flights to China to 75, more than any other airport in North America.
