Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has recently been named North America’s top airport by Skytrax for a record-breaking 10th consecutive year. It’s often ranked among the top 15 best airports in the world due in part to its fantastic customer service, along with their commitment to innovation!
YVR is unique considering it is a not-for-profit, community-based organization. It returns all profits into charitable programs for local communities, investment in the environment & airport improvements. Now that’s something worth celebrating!
YVR Art Foundation
One of the community programs is the YVR Art Foundation, which has pledged $50,000 in scholarships to indigenous artists. Check out this short video to see all the great ways that the YVR Art Foundation is giving back!
