YVR takes two top honours at 2021 Skytrax World Airport Awards

For a record 12 years in a row, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has been named Best Airport in North America at the 2021 Skytrax World Airport awards.

In addition to taking that top honour, YVR also received the Skytrax COVID-19 Airport Excellence award. New for 2021, this award recognizes those airports selected by passengers for providing the highest health, hygiene and safety protocols during the global pandemic.

YVR is the only Canadian airport to receive the COVID-19 Airport Excellence award.

Skytrax Awards are consumer-driven—passengers voluntarily vote on their favourite airports and what makes them special. The awards are recognized as the global benchmark of airport excellence with more than 21.65 million completed passenger questionnaires, making it the largest annual global airport customer satisfaction survey.

Congratulations to the airport community, partners and passengers who helped YVR achieve these awards.
