Fun Fact Friday: 261,000 flights arrived and departed from YVR last year

YVR welcomes more than 17 million travellers last year and more than 227,000 tonnes of cargo. But how many aircraft movements is that? Well, in 2012, there were about 261,000 flights that arrived and departed from YVR. That's about one flight every two minutes for those keeping score at home.

Aircraft originate in Vancouver and fly directly to places as close as Nanaiamo Harbour (10 minutes), to as far away as Sydney, Australia (about 15 hours depending on the breeze).
