In 2013, Vancouver Airport Authority launched BorderXpress, an Automated Passport Control (APC), designed to partially automate the customs clearance process for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (US CBP). APC helps eligible passengers clear the border up to 89 per cent faster than the typical inspection process, reducing wait times, terminal congestion and operational costs. The program is now available in 18 airports and continues to be expanded to select airports across North America.
In 2012, Vancouver Airport Authority launched a 10-year strategy to make it easier and faster for passengers and baggage to move through the airport to ensure YVR remains an economic driver for British Columbia.
