“Air Canada has been an incredible partner in increasing our passenger growth by continuously delivering new and exciting destinations for our customers,” said YVR’s President & CEO Craig Richmond, commenting on its record-breaking numbers. “I’d like to thank Air Canada for their commitment to growing their transpacific hub out of YVR and in turn supporting our vision to be a sustainable gateway hub between Asia and the Americas. We couldn’t do this without their support.”


Vancouver International Airport (YVR) celebrated a record-breaking year in passenger growth, welcoming over 18.8 million passengers between January and October—representing a year-over-year growth rate of 9.5 per cent, putting YVR on track to reach 22 million passengers in 2016. This increase is largely recognized in Air Canada’s expansion of their transpacific hub out of YVR, representing approximately 50 per cent of passengers at YVR and serving over 55 destinations worldwide.
