2016 Summer Runway Operations

UPDATE: Runway End Safety Areas Project and South Runway Maintenance Extended

Due to the poor weather conditions experienced in June and early July, the RESA project and the annual runway maintenance program have been extended two weeksfrom September 2, 2016 to September 17, 2016.

During this time period, the South Runway will be closed six nights a week (Sun-Fri) between 10 PM and 7 AM and the North Runway will be used for all arrivals and departures.

While there is no work planned to occur on Saturday nights and statutory holidays, the North Runway will be used for landings as the Instrument Landing System on the South Runway will be out of service.

We apologize for the project delays and thank you for your ongoing patience as we continue to maintain the highest safety standards at Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
