    Very pleasant venue. Avoid checking bags inbound if you can as bag delivery is mysteriously slow. A Nexus card speeds immigration and customs.

    A really clean and well kept airport. Ignore the lounges and look for the calm seating area by the pond. The free wifi is decent too. Restaurants past check in are unfounded a refurb at the moment.

    The airport has free wifi and lots of charging stations for your electronics. It's electronic heaven!

    Check out the SkyTrain for a ride to the city that is both slower and more expensive than a cab.

    Not impressed.

    They have some nice souvenir shops for that last minute gift you forgot to buy your loved ones!
  • Danette S.
    All of the restaurants are closed and only food court options are open. If you want wine and a quiet seat, you'll need to pay $35 for the lounge.

    Best airport in North America. Beautiful, clean and efficient. The aboriginal art and water features contribute to a wonderful arrival experience.

    Free wifi! Though sometimes the security lines are a nightmare. 😕

    Canadian immigration officers love to harass and interrogate you randomly inside terminal if you're Asian. They assume everyone is mainland Chinese and carry loads of $$$ on hand. 😂😂😂

    Small, cozy, not many people around, quick security, free WiFi

    If you're making a domestic connection you'll have to go through security again.

    normally you go through US immigration and customs here at YVR, except for flights leaving after 8pm, then you do it when you land. (E gates are US-bound only with pre-clearance: D gates are int'l)

    Security and customs are the slow and inefficient. We missed a flight due to the overly bureaucratic customs procedures. Vancouver has a world class facility that suffers from bureaucracy

    Try the Vietnamese food US Flight's terminal. Veggie roll is great!

    Pleased to see YVR stopped dedicating 100 wheelchairs & staff to assist incoming foreigners from the plane to immigration. Because that kinda seemed parasitic. Oops! Did I just say that?? Thanks YVR.

    YVR is truly a world class facility. One of my favourites. Domestic departure section has some great sandwich shops. International departures has ample places to sit and charge devices. Streamlined!

    International/Asian pleasant feel, not stressful.

    The wifi is free and works well!

    Such a bad customer service at the international departures food court! A&W can't take order correctly, Subway can't explain their menus, at Hanami they talk to you like a hobo. No good food options!

    Watches and (sometimes) shoes and hats can stay on through security screening.

    Accept for customs, it's often times a pretty smooth and uneventful airport. Plenty of memorabilia options.

    Just minutes from downtown Vancouver you’ll find the Capilano Suspension Bridge which is suspended 230 feet above the Capilano River and has several thrilling activities for you to do!
