Today is a very exciting day as YVR officially opens the new and improved Larry Berg Flight Path Park to the public.
We put together a fun blog post last week that looked at some of the more interesting airport codes for terminals that can be reached directly from YVR. The piece was well-receieved, so we've decided to explore the history of a few more quirky airport codes (and figure out how to get there from YVR)
We tweeted a cool story recently about why there is a Y at the beginning of all Canadian airport codes, so I thought it might be interesting to revisit my baggage handling days and explore some of the more out there airport codes and out how they came to be.
Safety is priority number one at Vancouver International Airport, which means potentially lifesaving equipment needs to be readily available.
New season, new coach, new bar and grill.
I take a look back at the summer that was at YVR in 2013.
Hello/Bonjour! My name is Anna and I’m one of the YVR School Program Tour Guides for 2013. Every year YVR welcomes thousands of Grade 5 students from across the Lower Mainland to take a tour of North America’s #1 airport. In its fifth year, this fun and informational program highlights the importance of YVR in our community and encourages students to see the airport as more than just a place to take off from.
Russ Baker Way is a north/south roadway that connects the No. 2 Road Bridge and Dinsmore Bridge in Richmond to the airport and beyond to Vancouver via the Arthur Laing Bridge. The road is owned and operated by Vancouver Airport Authority and named after Russell Francis Baker, a notorious Canadian aviator and businessman who once ran Canadian Pacific Airlines.
We're proud to welcome a new member to our Wildlife Management team. Warning: cute factor x 1000!
What a summer! YVR was out and about at festivals all over the Lower Mainland this summer, getting to know our passengers and answering any and all questions you had about Vancouver International Airport. Our community Ambassador Jake already wrote all about his experiences, but we also made a fun video highlighting some of our favourite moments. Watch and enjoy!
