YVR has just been named Best Airport in North America for the third year in a row as part of the 2012 Skytrax World Airport Awards. YVR also ranked in the top ten airports worldwide.
The awards, announced today in Vienna, Austria, are based on an independent survey which ranks airports worldwide based on a wide variety of criteria, including design and layout, retail, cleanliness, signage clarity and transportation.
The Skytrax awards are the most prestigious and coveted awards in the industry, as they're voted on by passengers. More than 12 million passengers from 108 countries participated in the survey.
We can’t take all the credit though; the award is a testament to the strong partnerships in place at YVR with airlines, government agencies, business partners, retailers and volunteers. More than 23,600 people to come work on YVR’s Sea Island home every day: a true community.
Also celebrating, is YVR’s hotel, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport. They have been recognized for the second year in a row in the Skytrax category for Best Airport Hotel in North America. Something we completely agree with!
