PPR. May find obstructions on strip. Share'with road traffic, logging trucks etc.

Taxis

YVR taxi waits are ridiculous There are taxis waiting but they can’t gat them to the terminal. It’s complete chaos and incompetence

P.S. The marker is a half mile north west of the actual airstrip.

Mule Creek

Mule Creek is a 4000X75 emergency grass strip. It is littered with gofer holes, but usable for bush planes. The Haines highway gets socked in quite a bit, so it is nice to have this option.

Luggage

Luggage retrieval is the absolutely worst of ANY airport in the world. We have waited over 40 minutes and still no luggage . In any other airport and I have travelled the world luggage is available within 20 minutes . In Winnipeg it was there by the time we arrived at the carousel. What is the problem in Vancouver. You are advertising good new things coming to YVR I suggest better faster baggage handling

Picture of

Passport control

Coming back from abroad, standing in avery long line with over a hundred people ahead of me. The new system is very insufficient and slow. Multiple airport clerks walking around looking busy doing nothing. It feels like an international airport was not ready to receive multiple flights.

re: re: Why no Uber or Lyft?

Your points are correct only to a degree - you exaggerate on every item presented. As one who uses taxis at YVR regularly, I have only once had a delay in the past year. I do agree that the airport could do with more taxis available especially with late evening arrivals.

re: Why no Uber or Lyft?

YVR Ground management team do not listen to actual taxi drivers, they do meetings with taxi owners most of them even not qualified to drive taxi. Curb side staff they do not have driving license, only training given to them how to suspend drivers. Drivers do not like flat rate so they avoid yvr, they make more money in town. To load taxis yvr need trained professionals not minimum wage immigrants. Next time when you vote elect MP who has guts to raise this yvr issue in parliament. Any accident on Author Laing bridge is not cleared for hours and taxis stuck in traffic. More after other passengers' comments

Why no Uber or Lyft?

Lineups for taxis- but no taxis.....

Lots full of taxis- but none for patrons......

If you can get a cab, you are often refused a ride because β€œI don’t go there”.....

Why no Uber or Lyft? It might smarten up the rip off taxi companies.

Can’t you clean?

I’ve been through at least 40 airports, all over the world.

YVR has some of the nicest washrooms, but with the poorest cleaning. I’ve been through here multiple times, and rarely seen anything different. Urinals that haven’t been cleaned under since.... well... who knows when. Paper dispensers empty. Usually more than half. Garbage chutes overflowing. No soap in the fancy automatic dispensers. Unwashed floors.

I just used one that had been cleaned in the last half hour( so the paper says), and EVERY urinal had a dirty floor under it.

Where’s the quality control? Is there a manager actually checking?

Sheesh- can’t this beautiful airport do better?

This air strip still exists and is used by private planes, even though it's not official maintained.

I have not found much information on this airport other than it seems to be an abandoned location sometime in the 1960s. The Smith River airport holds the record for the coldest temperature ever recorded in British Columbia (recorded in 1947).

It's winter, you need to de-ice aircraft!

Man you kids are dropping the ball!

Who is incharge of this debacle called YVR?

3 hours into a 5 hour flight cause you clowns can't have enough de-icing equipment to service your airport!

My 5 hour flight is now going to be at least a 9 if not a 10 hour flight.

Get your act together and stop this amature hour.

Building of the runway.

I dont have a lot of information however just found out my grandfather ran the heavy duty cat to build the strip at war time. Is there any signs of the airstrip left. I would like to bring my teen to it for family history maybe in 2018.

Shuswap Regional Airport (YSN/CZAM)

How and why Salmon Arm's airport got two very different codes beats me considering how consistent Canadian codes are.

Chalk it up to being Salmon Arm, I guess.

Taxi lineup and smoking area

I would like to suggest that YVR move the smoking area which is too close to the taxi line. Currently standing 20 deep (further to the previous comment) and it feels like we are breathing smoke directly from a cigarette. It isn't even windy. This is not acceptable.

Now to the lineup. How is it that there is a lot full of taxis and a lineup with NO cars in sight. This is a pattern that needs correcting.

Picture of

Taxi's

The YVR department for controlling taxi cabs coming to pick up travelers at the airport should all be let go!

20 minute wait line! 60 people in line! No taxi cabs!

There are 300 to 400 taxi cabs in a holding area but no one is calling them.

World class airport with no taxi service.

Total BS

Cabs should have zone stickers on window. Similar to Mtl or other cities.

YSN is still the IATA identifier for Salmon Arm. St. Catherines is CYSN (IATA: YCM)

No bar or restaurant

I am presently sitting in the international departures area with a two and a half hour wait for my flight. After quite a stressful morning getting to the airport, checking in and clearing security, my wife said she would like to relax with a glass of wine. A cold beer would have been very welcome to me as well. On searching Departures however, I couldn't find a bar or even a proper restaurant --- just an array of fast food joints that I normally avoid at all costs. On enquiring in a duty free shop I was told that indeed there was nowhere to get a glass of wine other than in the airline lounges. For a major international airport this is really. Not good enough.

Probably one of the most nicely decorated airports around.

However, do they need to be spending that much money on decorating it?

There is alot of space that could be better utilized with seating. i.e. a water stream?

There is alot of artwork and the aquarium but most of it is in the departure / arrival sections, so unless you are traveling, you can't see it.

It's not like people visit the airport because it's an attraction, most just want to travel !!

I don't have a problem with this so much, in itself, but it comes at a cost to airport users.

A $20 fee airport improvement fee.

I would rather see a reduced / removed fee, and have a more "plain" airport.

I'm not a huge traveller, but have travelled to many countries and I haven't seen any that are as nice, but again,

at a cost which I'd rather not incur.

My family lived there from early 1950 until I was old enough to go to school. My father was a mechanic . It was a very interesting place. I remember when the garage burned down and the camp parties that were held in the common rooms. It was at the end of a very muddy road well into the 1980's It was shut down in the early 1970's. When we travelled in and out you had to check in on the open wire telephone system. When we lived there, there were only a couple of homes and a couple of rough dwellings and the majority of the staff were single men.

Liard River Air Strip Condition

Last time I landed at the Liard River strip was in May of 1984. Lots of frost heave but quiet. Now I am having a hard time trying to figure out if it still exists. Not interested in big paved places.

Is the Airstrip open?

Please advise if Airfield is open

Kimsquit airstrip

Was built back in the coastal logging camp days, has been unserviceable off and on due to logs and rocks placed on it to deter users apparently. More of a super cub strip now.

There is an airstrip just n.e of the same bay by the dean riverside which is usable

Beautiful calm lake in paradise, by a golf course, on an per

We landed our PC12, parked in front of the picturesque log cabin we rented through VRBO.COM, dropped our bags and headed to the golf course next door for a great lunch and 9 holes. The concierge of our stay had a fully equipped ski boat parked at our reserved boat slip as promised. We experienced the most incredible week of water skiing, golfing and adventures our family has ever had. We must try to replicate that amazing experience again.

Air Base at Dog Creek

My father was stationed at Dog Creek upon his return from WWII as an evader, prisoner and escapee. After he married my Mom, he had to hide her on the base as no women were allowed! He tells me the men saved their beer rations, pooled them together and drank them after VE Parade in Williams Lake. He was there from late 1944 to about the fall of 1945, when he was discharged from the Air Force.

My husband and I were in the Dog Creek area today, September 1, 2105, and spoke with a First Nation local, who directed us out of town to the site, but we could find no evidence of the airport.

Invermere Airport

Watch out for the crazy guy in hanger 1. Pulled up to FBO for fuel and he comes out screaming violently at us that we blew dust around his hanger. Thought he was going to hit us or our aircraft. Seems he thinks this is his private airport and although right beside the fuel that he should scream at anyone that pulls up. Suggestion: public airport beside fuel, close your door when someone pulls up or move away from fuel.
