Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is located directly in Richmond and is the second busiest air hub in Canada. Over 22 million passengers and more than 50 different airlines from Canada, the USA and around the world fly through them every year.

Skytrax has named the airport the best airport in North America ten times in a row.

With more than 150 shops, restaurants and bars to choose from, YVR is always a good starting or ending point for any journey. Various duty-free shops at the airport are becoming increasingly popular among passengers waiting for departure.

After checking, passengers can also visit the huge aquarium, a smaller part of which is dedicated exclusively to jellyfish.

Arrival to the YVR is stress-free as the airport is very well marked and also has a number of volunteers who will be happy to advise. International departures are from the main terminal.

Transportation between the airport and downtown Richmond or Vancouver is provided by train, which runs every few minutes from early morning until late at night. Downtown Vancouver is a 20-minute drive away.

You can also take a taxi from the airport, rent a car or request a hotel shuttle, as your hotel provides.
