Building a better airport for British Columbia.

Our vision is to be the gateway of choice for travellers and airlines. To do that, we are implementing a 10-year strategy and capital plan to attract new routes and carriers and improve the customer experience. The strategy focuses on decreasing connection times between international and domestic flights, enhancing baggage systems and upgrading terminal facilities and infrastructure.

Projects include

  • More than 700 metres of secure corridors and moving walkways to reduce connection times for passengers
  • New high-speed baggage systems
  • Upgrades to the original areas of the 1968 Domestic Terminal Building
  • Runway safety enhancements


The safety of our passengers, employees and contractors is a top priority. For information on our safety standards and requirements, visit our Contractor Safety page. YVR has compulsory work standards detailed in our Construction Safety Security Manual.
