Terminal Expansions

YVR’s terminal is undergoing exciting expansions and upgrades in preparation for future growth. This will bring more amenities for our passengers and airlines—maintaining YVR’s award-winning airport experience.

YVR has come a long way since its humble beginning as a small administration building with one runway in 1931. The airport is now the largest building in B.C. and the second busiest airport in the country. To accommodate this growth, we are embarking on multi-year construction to ensure we are able to offer the same level of exceptional service our customers and partners have come to expect.

Over the coming years, we will work on expansions to our domestic, transborder and international piers, growing the airport in an incremental and centralized manner. For the passenger, a centralized expansion means one interconnected terminal, with short distances between gates, linked baggage systems and easy connections.
