20 Million Reasons to Celebrate

A major milestone in the growth of Vancouver International Airport was reached today when the 20 millionth passenger of 2015 travelled through YVR.

What a year at YVR! A major milestone in the growth of Vancouver International Airport was reached on December 22 when the 20 millionth passenger of 2015 travelled through YVR. This benchmark is the first step towards reaching our audacious goal of 25 million by 2020 and reflects the tremendous amount of hard work not just of Sea Island employees, but also Vancouver and the province and the entire country in attracting airlines and tourists to our amazing city. 

We celebrated the event in terminal with a pop-up party and awarded the lucky traveller with a travel voucher for $10,000 and 20 YVR gifts to celebrate 20 million passengers. It was such a magical moment for Charles and Kim, who danced with joy when we told them they were the lucky 20 millionth. 

Thank you to all our passengers who flew through YVR in 2015, the employees who worked tirelessly to make it all happen, and the community we proudly represent on the world stage. Here's to 21 million in 2016!
