The multi-year expansion at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) involves a number of capital construction projects to enhance the airport experience and improve YVR’s competitive position as a world-class connecting hub.
Current projects include a Central Utilities Building that will house one of Canada’s largest GeoExchange energy systems; a new parkade and ground transportation facility; expanded international terminal building with four new bridged aircraft gates and four new bus operation gates and new remote aircraft stands.
Two new International hold rooms with capacity for 600 passengers have just opened and a new Transboder hold room is starting construction in October—both will support YVR’s remote stand operations.
To make room for the new remote aircraft stands, YVR will reclaim a portion of its existing jetSet parking concept and convert the remaining space into a valet operation. Construction on YVR’s runway safety enhancements will also continue until 2022.
