YVR Voted Best Airport in North America

March 30, 2011

Vancouver International Airport has been named Best Airport in North America for the second year in a row as part of the 2011 Skytrax World Airport Awards, an independent and highly regarded survey which ranks airports worldwide based on a wide variety of criteria.

More than 11.38 million passengers from 100 countries participated in the survey, which asked respondents to rate airports based on 39 different criteria including cleanliness, design and layout, retail facilities, clarity of flight information and signs, luggage handling and transportation.

YVR also won second place for Staff Service Excellence in North America.

Both awards are a testament to the strong partnerships in place at YVR with the airlines, government agencies, business partners, retailers and volunteers who work on Sea Island every day.

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel was also recognized in a brand-new Skytrax category for Best Airport Hotel in North America.
