RICHMOND, BC, March 21, 2018 /CNW/ - At Vancouver International Airport (YVR), we're expecting a daily average of more than 74,000 passengers during spring break. We encourage everyone to have a transportation plan before heading to the airport.
Passengers travelling by car to YVR should leave extra time as our parking lots are currently experiencing peak volumes. Extra staff are on-hand to assist with directing people to lots with available spots, and there are overflow lots available should regular parking options reach capacity.
Travelers are reminded that there are many options for getting to the airport, including the Canada Line which is a short 26-minute train ride from downtown Vancouver.
We have a spokesperson available for short clips from 8:15 to 9:00am, 12:00 to 12:30pm and 1:00pm onwards. Please email [email protected] to request an interview if interested.
