Vancouver International AIrport (or simply called by its call letters YVR) is Canada's main western airport and gateway. Many flights that are coming in from Asia, Australia, Europe, and the U.S. come through YVR, making it (after Toronto) Canada's busiest airport.
Realizing that this is one of the nation's chief domestic and international entryways, airport designers have done major beautification around the complex. When you enter its luggage and customs area, you'll be surrounded by First Nations statues and waterfalls cascading next to the escalators. Vancouver truly has one of the most welcoming airports on the continent.
There's plenty of taxis and public transportation that can take you into the city center. Also available are many places to rent a car.
The Vancouver International airport is not very far away. There is a bus that takes you to the city (and probably beyond, I am not sure anymore). There are also shuttles to downtown Vancouver. Of course, cabs and car rental companies are always there at your service.
One of the best ways to see Vancouver is to take a trip on our 'Skytrain'-'Seabus' light rapid transit system. It will take you from one end of the city to the other in an elevated 'Skytrain'. At the end of the line you take a 'Seabus' across the inlet to shop at Lonsdale Quay. It's great!!
The airport code for Vancouver is 'YVR'. It has two terminals, one for International and the other for domestic and US region. They are just next door to each other.
The airport situates at Richmond, one of the southern city of Greater Vancouver, and it is around 45 minutes drive from downtown.
When leaving Vancouver, make sure you have plenty of time to stroll around the airport. There are nice sculptures, totem poles and other knick knacks worth to have a look...
