NAV CANADA is heading to YVR on January 23-25, 2015 to test our Instrument Landing System (ILS). For those who are unfamiliar to what the ILS does, it’s a navigation instrument that guide pilots safely to a runway during good and bad weather conditions.
We couldn't believe our ears recently when late-night laugh man Jimmy Fallon started talking about the rockfish in his opening monologue on The Tonight Show.
YVR recently celebrated the opening of the expanded Domestic Terminal, the A-B Connector. Featuring spruced-up gates, an expedited baggage system, seismic upgrades and a wide range of new dining and shopping options, the A-B Connector will keep YVR connected to destinations across Canada.
Today was an extremely important day at YVR as we officially opened the A-B Connector, a massive capital project (the biggest in our history) that was the first step in our 10-year Gateway Plan.
Last year at YVR was amazing beyond our wildest Dreamliners. We had new airlines, new aircraft and welcomed a record number of passengers at YVR. But we have big plans for 2015 as well!
Starting this Saturday, the Australian carrier Qantas will once again fly their YVR to Sydney route!
With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it's important to try and relax and enjoy yourself while travelling.

With all the latest and greatest technology available at our fingertips it's easy to forget about some of the low-tech travel items that can still come in handy during your holiday excursion.
Every month we select an aircraft to highlight and learn more about. For December, we went with an old favourite that only makes one long but important flight per year.
