For the fifth consecutive year, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has been named by Skytrax as North America’s best airport.

The announcement was made in Barcelona earlier today during the World Airport Awards – a global benchmark of airport excellence that is known within the travel industry as the Passengers’ Choice Awards.

The rankings are based entirely on independent passenger surveys and is held in the highest regard for its impartiality and integrity.

YVR Airport was also named the world’s best airport serving between 10-20 million passengers, ranked 2nd in the North America’s best airport staff list, and ranked 9th overall in the world’s best airports list (just behind Zurich and ahead of London Heathrow). The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel on the east end of the terminal building was named the best airport hotel in North America.
