Our Story

Who We Are

YVR is your airport—we operate it with you in mind.

YVR is unique, just like the region it grew up in – not just in terms of its award-winning reputation, but in the way that the airport is operated.

As a community-focused and financially independent company, the way in which YVR operates and governs allows us to support and reinvest in our communities.

Our governance model and how it is uniquely applied at YVR, allows for all profits generated to be reinvested  – enabling us to provide significant financial and social benefit to communities on Sea Island and beyond.

All profits stay in our communities. We insist on safety, accountability, teamwork and innovation in all that we do.

Canada’s second busiest airport, YVR served 24.2 million passengers in 2017. Fifty-six airlines serve YVR, connecting people and businesses to more than 127 non-stop destinations worldwide.

YVR is not only a transportation hub, it is an important economic generator in our region.

YVR innovates not only to improve our airport and communities, but to bring technologies to market that will benefit passengers and industry partners around the world.
