“Maintaining a safe and secure airfield for aircraft and passengers is the focus of everything we do at YVR,” said a YVR spokesperson by email. “We appreciate the patience of all passengers as our crews work to get aircraft on their way as quickly and safely as possible during today’s weather conditions.”

 

 

 

However, snowfall has delayed some employees from getting to the airport, which has mostly affected security screenings and some flights have been delayed or cancelled.

YVR recommends that travelers check with their airlines for possible changes in flight times before heading to the airport and to leave extra early whether driving or on the Canada Line.
