This just in from Amsterdam—YVR has received Airport of the Year at the annual CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence! This award is given to the airport that has done the most to advance the progress of the aviation industry. It’s one of the biggest awards out there, with recent winners including Singapore Changi Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schipol and Beijing Capital Airport. We are the first airport in North America to ever win this award.
This award speaks volumes to YVR’s vision. There are so many reasons why we have won—from amazing customer care, to our excellent facilities, environmental initiatives and growth strategy. Our community-based governance model has a lot to do with it, as it allows us to constantly improve the airport for our customers, partners and communities.
This award is a real team win. YVR is Airport of the Year because of the YVR team—over 23,000 people who work on Sea Island and go beyond every day. And we couldn’t do it without the support of our communities and passengers. Thank you!
