Simplified Passenger Travel
The Airport Authority has long been a pioneer of technologies that help customers travel through the airport quickly and easily. Automated Border Clearance (ABC), NEXUS and self-service kiosk technology are just some of the innovations developed here at YVR.
Together with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), we continued to expand the Automated Border Clearance program in 2012, which allows returning Canadian citizens and permanent residents to clear the border using self-service kiosks.
Approximately 1.3 million eligible passengers used Automated Border Clearance at YVR in 2012. The total number of available kiosks increased from 12 to 20, resulting in reduced congestion in the Customs Hall.
