Winter weather conditions

We are currently seeing some winter weather conditions at YVR. Passengers are advised to check with their airlines for current timelines and flight information, or check before coming to the airport. Passengers are also encouraged to leave extra time when traveling to the airport and to drive safely.

To ensure that you are prepared for the winter conditions, we recommend the following travel tips:

  • Check the status of your flight on your airline's website or the flight information section on this website before coming to the airport. Remember that inclement weather around the province or country could affect your flight.
  • Check-in online, print your boarding pass before you leave for the airport or have it emailed to your handheld mobile device. This will help you save time and also reduce unnecessary contact at the airport. 
  • If you are driving to the airport, have a parking plan. Save by pre-booking your parking at
  • Factor in time for traffic congestion, parking and walking to the terminal.
  • And allow ample time to check in, clear security and board your flight.
  • Don't forget to wear your mask at all times in the terminal. 

Thank you for your patience.
