YVR has broken a record with its historic win of being the Best Airport in North America for eight consecutive years.
The Skytrax World Airport Awards recognized YVR for its excellence yet again this year. This win makes it the first and only airport to receive the top accolade for eight years in a row.
The winner is based on a vote by 13.8-million passengers worldwide. The surveys were conducted in 550 airports, measuring 39 elements in the travel experience. These included: efficiency, comfort, amenities, and security clearance processes.
“This impressive accomplishment is shared with the 23,000 people who work and volunteer at YVR as well as our amazing community, passengers and partners. On behalf of YVR, I thank you and offer you a big congratulations!” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “I am so proud of the YVR team for breaking our own record of most consecutive wins. This is particularly meaningful this year as we saw 22.3 million passengers come through our terminal—two million additional passengers from the year before.”
YVR also made the top three list for Best Airport Staff Service in North America. In addition, Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel nabbed the Best Airport Hotel slot.
To celebrate this incredible achievement, YVR is giving away eight free flights to any North American destination. The contest is going on over the next eight days.
