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.

Vancouver loves its yoga, so it has always been pretty surprising that there isn’t already a YYoga studio at the YVR Airport. Flying can be an anxious and somewhat uncomfortable experience (especially when you’re sitting for more than 4 hours!) so getting a little bit of stretching or meditation in before a flight can be very valuable.

This summer, YVR will be trying out a new dedicated yoga room as part of the Take-off Fridays Festival, the airport’s popular summer event series that features music, entertainment, and family-friendly activities in the terminal. The yoga room will be open each Friday until August 26 from 10am – 2pm.
