YVR Terminal Operations Update

As passenger traffic is set to increase this summer at YVR, we are reopening areas of the airport that had been brought together to optimize the use of our terminals. Beginning tomorrow, you’ll see some changes to domestic check-in and pre-board screening.

Flying Within Canada?

The Domestic Terminal check-in and baggage drop-off area on departures level 3 is reopening. This impacts the following airlines:

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

Once you are checked-in, head to the C-Gates checkpoint for pre-board security screening. AB-Gates checkpoint will be open with reduced hours to accommodate peak domestic travel times.

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 is temporarily closed.

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. As of April 16, all food and beverage outlets pre-security in International Terminal will be closed. Select operators remain open pre-security in the Domestic Terminal on Level 3 (food court) and Level 1 as well as Hudson News.

Wayfinding signage will be placed at curbside drop-off and throughout the terminal to re-direct passengers, and Customer Care representatives will be stationed in certain areas to answer questions. 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.
