Visitors to YVR during COVID-19

The airport plays an important role as critical infrastructure, facilitating cargo, Canadians travelling home and emergency air support. But we need your help. During the COVID-19 crisis, we are asking that only essential travellers or airport workers come to the airport. If you’re picking up or dropping off passengers, we ask that you stay outside the terminal wherever possible.

Picking Up: 

When picking up passengers, we have a complimentary Cell Phone Waiting Area located on Aviation Avenue. Wait here until your passengers are ready for pick-up in one of two passenger pick-up areas (Domestic or International) on the Arrivals level. The Cell Phone Waiting Area includes complimentary WiFi and is a short distance to the terminal. 

Dropping Off: 

For those dropping off passengers, YVR’s departure level curb is available for immediate drop-offs. Please provide your guests with any assistance getting from your car to the curb, but please stay outside of the airport. Complimentary luggage carts are available curbside to assist all travellers moving through the airport. 

Lastly, while a limited number of food and beverage options remain available pre-security, these options remain open for essential travellers and airport workers only.

Thanks for your help keeping our passengers, essential workers and infrastructure safe. We all have a role to play.
