Vancouver International Airport (IATA code YVR) is located on Sea Island in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, about 12 km (7.5 miles) from downtown Vancouver. In 2008 it was the second busiest airport in Canada (behind Toronto Pearson International Airport), with non-stop flights daily to Asia, Europe, Oceania, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and other airports within Canada. The airport has won several notable international "best airport" awards, and retains the distinction of "Best Canadian Airport" in the regional results. It is an Air Canada hub as well as a focus city for WestJet and a hub for Air Transat.

Vancouver International Airport's interior features one of the most extensive collections of Pacific Northwest Coast Native art in the world, and blues and greens to reflect the colours of the land, sea and sky. The airport uses a great deal of carpet and vast expanses of glass to let in large amounts of natural light. Arriving passengers come down escalators leading to a platform across a large waterfall. The Vancouver Airport aboriginal art collection includes wooden sculptures and totem poles."
