YVR Airport Named Best in North America

The news was announced on @YVRAirport‘s Twitter account this morning so all of the numbers and results are not yet posted online.

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport also won the 2014 award for Best Airport Hotel in North America.

According to the Skytrax World Airport Awards in 2013, YVR was the 8th best airport in the world and 1st in North America. It was also ranked 1st in terms of size, topping the table for airports that carry 10-20 million passengers annually.

When the airport won last year I listed some of my top reasons to love YVR, which include its size, free WIFI, artwork, layout, convenience, location, and more. As someone who travels a lot, locally and internationally, I wholeheartedly agree that YVR is the best airport to travel through, and to come home to after each journey.

Update The full results are now online. YVR is ranked #9 in the world for 2014 and once again #1 when ranked based on size.

    Such a shame that the border control is very under staffed and there are very long waits.
