This makes it two years in a row as Vancouver International Airport or YVR as us locals call it has been named the best airport in North America in by the annual Skytrax annual World Airport Survey. Having been to other North American airports it’s really easy to see why. In 2008 it ranked 2nd and in 2009 it came in at 3rd.
More than 11 million questionnaires were distributed to passengers and a respondents rated airports based on 39 categories. Some of the categories were accessibility, shopping (which is really great by the way) and cleanliness.
Hong Kong International Airport won the 2011 award for airport of the year. I just came back from Hong Kong and not only is that airport clean, it’s extremely efficient.
