YVR Named Best Airport in North America for Fifth Straight Year

What a day! We are all so excited here at YVR to have been named the Best Airport in North America for a fifth straight year at the Skytrax World Airport Awards today in Barcelona.

This marks only the second time in award history that any airport has earned top ranking five years in a row. YVR also held onto one of the spots for world’s best airports, the only North American airport included in the global top 10!

More great news: The Fairmont Vancouver Airport was named the Best Airport Hotel in North America! Congratulations to our friends at the Fairmont.

The Skytrax World Airport Awards are the global benchmark of airport excellence. Awards are based on millions of passenger surveys conducted independently with stringent impartiality. This year’s awards tallied the results of 12.85 million surveys completed by customers of 110 different nationalities at 410 airports worldwide.

Surveys measured the travel experience across 39 airport service categories, from arrivals and check-in to security and border clearance processes, as well as shopping, service and dining options.

YVR you ready to party? We are launching a celebration campaign to thank employees, customers, volunteers, airlines and business partners. Look for details about special events, contests and other activities in the coming weeks here on the blog or follow us on Twitter @yvrairport.
