YVR Terminal Operations Update

As passenger traffic continues to slow at YVR, we are bringing together additional areas of the airport to optimize the use of our terminals. Beginning today, you’ll see some changes to domestic check-in and international passenger pre-board screening.

Flying Within Canada?

Domestic check-in and baggage drop-off have been moved to the International Terminal. This impacts the following airlines:

  • Air Canada
  • WestJet
  • Air Transat
  • Flair Airlines
  • Air North

The Domestic Terminal check-in and baggage drop-off area on departures level 3 is temporarily closed.

Once you are checked-in, head to the C-Gates checkpoint for pre-board security screening.

Flying Internationally (not including the U.S.)?

Your check-in and baggage drop-off process stays the same at the International Terminal.

Please note, once you have checked-in, you will now go to the Domestic Terminal C-Gates checkpoint for pre-board security screening, then walk to your International Terminal gate after security. The international pre-board screening checkpoint will open on an as-needed basis.

Flying to the U.S.?

Your process does not change. Check-in and drop your bags off at the U.S. Terminal, then head to pre-board security and US Customs.

These terminal changes include closing all washroom and retail, food and beverage outlets in the impacted areas. Changes to retail, food and beverage are happening daily, and tenants are trying their best to match operating hours with flight schedules to ensure services are available for our passengers. Select operators remain open pre-security in the Domestic Terminal on Level 3 (food court) and Level 1.

Wayfinding signage will be placed at curbside drop-off and throughout the terminal to re-direct passengers. If any assistance is required, please contact our 24/7 Customer Care team at 604-207-7077 or pick up any courtesy telephone throughout the airport.
