YVR deemed Cleanest Airport in North America at this year’s Skytrax World Airport Awards

Vancouver International Airport / Aéroport international de Vancouver (YVR) is proud to be recognized at the Skytrax World Airport Awards with a number of accolades, which were celebrated today at Passenger Terminal EXPO.

Skytrax has named YVR The Cleanest Airport in North America. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of airport staff and partners who maintain a safe and clean environment throughout the airport for our passengers and guests.

We have always placed a great emphasis on airport hygiene above and beyond standard cleaning processes, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We take pride in being innovators in this space, which can be illustrated through our partnership with Teck to incorporate antimicrobial copper in our airport over the past year.

In addition, YVR landed as one of the top three Best North American airports for the second consecutive year and as one of the top 20 Best Airports in the World. YVR was also recognized in top rankings for Best Airport Staff in North America and World’s Best Art in the Airport awards.

We’d also like to extend our congratulations to the Fairmont Vancouver Airport for once again winning the Best Airport Hotel in North America award and placing third for the Best Airport Hotel in the World. YVR passengers are fortunate to have access to luxury hotel that is setting a high bar for others across the world just steps away from our terminal.

Skytrax, the company behind the awards, is a leading provider of independent airport ratings and reviews, assessing the facilities of over 500 airports around the world each year through their annual Airport customer satisfaction survey.

We are grateful for this year’s recognition from Skytrax and are committed to excellence across all areas of our operations.
