Filming at YVR

Commercial Filming

Using airport property for on-location photography or filming of feature films, TV series, documentaries, commercials or general entertainment programs requires permission from YVR. Please contact Rachael Dudley by email at [email protected] or Sai Frame at [email protected]

On-Site Media Filming

If you are a member of the media and are interested in filming or taking photos on airport property, please contact us at 604-880-9815 or email [email protected]

We are committed to open and timely communications and will accommodate your requests wherever possible. However, access to areas occupied by our partners must be approved by YVR and the business partner.

We reserve the right to restrict access to any location for operational, safety and security reasons. The filming of security screening points is not permitted.

Live Transmission

Live feeds may be allowed at the curb of the terminal buildings. We assess all requests to film live from within the terminal on a case-by-case basis.

Filming live requires additional permissions from the Parking & Ground Transportation team. Please contact our Ground Transportation team at 604-303-4080 after you have contacted our media team.
