Every flight added at YVR helps create and support hundreds of jobs and contributes millions to B.C.'s economy. The video above shows one passenger's story and the connections they made.
Last Friday we celebrated our record-setting sixth consecutive Skytrax win with a thank you celebration in-terminal. This year, we were joined by our greater YVR team members as we handed out 3,000 chocolate airplane lollipops, 2,500 YVR chocolates and 3,000 YVR lollipops and thousands of thank you postcards to YVR employees, passengers, partners and the community.
It was a wet but wonderful day as we watched the Air France Boeing 777-200 touch down on 08L and we sealed our everlasting love with a lock on our very own version of the Pont des Arts. Check out the video and join us in saying bienvenue to the newest airline at YVR!
With the arrival of Air France we are excited to be welcoming another Boeing 777-200ER to the regular fleet on the runways at YVR!

Air France is a premium carrier that will operate a Boeing 777-200 for this service. Air France’s fleet of 777’s are being upgraded in order to create some of their best cabins, creating optimum travel comfort for the 309 passengers onboard.
Another amazing milestone was reached today as the 20 millionth passenger cleared US Customs using Automated Passport Control technology developed by YVR.
YVR was named #1 Airport in North America for the sixth year-in-a-row by Skytrax World Airport Awards, the premier international airport awards voted on by more than 13-million passengers worldwide. This is the first time in Skytrax award history that an airport has maintained a #1 ranking for six consecutive years!
YVR has a comprehensive Wildlife Management Program that employs a number of tactics to help keep metal birds and our feathered friends separated. One of those tactics is using highly-trained K9s that scare off birds when they encroach on runway areas.
With the first images of what will be the world's biggest aircraft just released, we thought we would take a closer look at a gargantuan bird that has visited YVR over the years.
