Vancouver International Airport (YVR) was recently voted Best Airport in North America for the eighth consecutive year at the Skytrax World Airport Awards. Recognized as the global benchmark of airport excellence, Skytrax surveyed over 13.8 million passengers at 550 airports around the world on elements in the airport travel experience, ranging from check-in to security and border clearance processes, comfort, efficiency, signage, transportation availability, passenger amenities and friendliness. YVR is the first and only airport to receive this top accolade for eight consecutive years.
“This impressive accomplishment is shared with the 23,000 people who work and volunteer at YVR as well as our amazing community, passengers and partners. On behalf of YVR, I thank you and offer you a big congratulations!” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “I am so proud of the YVR team for breaking our own record of most consecutive wins. This is particularly meaningful this year as we saw 22.3 million passengers come through our terminal—two million additional passengers from the year before.”
