Our expanded international pier will open in 2020—adding more capacity and delighting passengers with a West Coast island display and range of new amenities.

Construction is underway for an expansion to one of our international piers, known as Pier D. This project is our largest terminal expansion since 1996.

Opening in 2020, there will be eight additional wide body gates, including four bridged gates and four remote stand operation gates. The expansion will support large aircraft including the A380 which have a wingspan of 260 feet.

The expansion will continue with YVR’s well-known sense of place: a quiet terminal, First Nations and other art and plenty of seats at the gates. Passengers will experience the beauty of B.C. with a glassed in island forest—known as Mythical Island. Amenities such as digital art, restaurants and bars will also reflect all that our province has to offer.
