RICHMOND, BC, Dec. 26, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is expecting another busy day of the holiday season, with approximately 83,000 passengers traveling through the airport. We also anticipate increased traffic on nearby roadways due to the higher volume of shoppers at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport for Boxing Day, potentially causing delays for those traveling to the airport.
We recommend people give themselves extra time to get to the airport and consider taking the Canada Line. If traveling, please check with airlines for current flight timing and status.
We request that if you are planning to send cameras or reporters to YVR, please provide us with advance notice and email us at email@example.com.
