YVR set to announce $9.1 billion in expansion plans


Vancouver International Airport is set to release details about a $9.1-billion upgrade to the airport in Richmond.

YVR president Craig Richmond is scheduled to announce expansion plans at a press conference with the B.C. premier at 9 a.m.

Earlier this year, YVR saw passenger numbers rise by 8.4 per cent in 2017 compared with 2016 (or 1.9 million more passengers.) At the time, YVR said that made the airport North America’s fastest growing and said it wanted to build on the $5.6 billion YVR 2037 long-term plan that it unveiled a year ago.
