Vancouver International Airport has been named the top airport in North America for the fifth consecutive year.
Skytrax World Airport Awards — known informally as the passenger choice awards — surveyed almost 13 million customers from 110 countries at 410 airports worldwide.
The 39 categories in the survey ranged from arrivals and check-in, to shopping and dining options. Almost 18 million people used YVR in 2013, flying non-stop to more than 109 destinations worldwide. YVR is only the second airport to win the prize five years in a row in the competition’s history.
