It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the YVR Vancouver International Airport is known as being one of the best airports in the world. In fact, YVR was named ‘Best Airport in North America’ in a vote by 13.8 million airline passengers worldwide!

Officially, Vancouver has been ranked the #13 top airport in the world, listed closely behind airports in Singapore, Tokyo, Zurich, and England. But, YVR easily tops the list of North American airports – it isn’t until #26 (Cincinnati/Kentucky) that we see another North American airport listed in the awards.

Best of all, YVR has made the remarkable distinction of receiving this top accolade for eight consecutive years! An amazing feat when you consider the competition.

A $5 fee here, a $20 fee there … and suddenly you have a new $213-million domestic terminal area.

A new section of Vancouver International Airport’s domestic terminal is now open for business, featuring new shops, gates, lounges and artwork. The improvements were paid for by YVR’s airport improvement fee ($5 for flights within BC or the Yukon; $20 for flights elsewhere), which is automatically added onto ticket prices when you use the airport.

The new section of the 1968 terminal is known as the A-B Connector. In the past, passengers arriving from certain areas – like Prince George or Nanaimo – would have to go through security all over again before continuing to their next stop.  Now, however, they can breeze through the A-B Connector and skip the security lines.

But given the new shops and services inside the A-B Connector, they might just want to stay and linger awhile.   Continue reading:
