Economic Impact

Vancouver Airport Authority provides economic benefit on a local, provincial and national scale.

Through YVR’s operations, as well as tourism and cargo, we help facilitate $20.2 billion in total economic output and $10.4 billion in total GDP across B.C. Both of these statistics have gone up by 20 percent since the last study conducted in 2015. We also help contribute $1.4 billion in total government revenue.

YVR is also a major creator of jobs. There are more than 26,500 people employed at the airport and another 2,000 currently involved in airport construction right now. Additionally, there are more than 126,000 people employed across B.C. as a result of airport activities in sectors like tourism, hospitality, engineering, retail and operations.
