Vancouver Airport (YVR) has been named the best airport in the world.

The CAPA Centre for Aviation crowned YVR with the prestigious title at the Aviation Awards in Amsterdam on Thursday.

CAPA said the Vancouver Airport also has been a leader on the technology and environmental fronts. Last year the airport received an innovation award from CAPA for its BORDERXPRESS Automated Control Kiosks, which has reduced waiting times by more than 50% and is now in use at 32 airports across North America and the Caribbean.

Some of the highlights implemented and offered at YVR include a 32% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per passenger over the last decade and is the first airport to secure a salmon safe certification, highlighting its commitment to protect water quality and aquatic life.

Award Winning Art and Architecture
A stunning west coast-themed international departure area, and almost unanimous customer satisfaction reports (91 per cent), YVR features the largest Northwest Coast Native art collection in the world and two satellite Vancouver Aquarium exhibits.

Restroom for Pets
The pet-friendly restroom features a puppy potty and a grass floor as well as features to allow easy access for people with disabilities.

Free Yoga Space
Need a stretch before heading on that long flight? Vancouver International Airport has a room for you.
YVR and Yoga have announced a new pilot program that will provide a free yoga space for departing passengers.

This is the first time YVR has earned the ranking and is the first North American airport to do so. Previous winners are Singapore Changi Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and Beijing Capital International Airport.

YVR has grown from serving only 1,072 passengers in 1931 to an expected 22 million in 2016. It now serves over 35 airlines from around the world.
