With just over a week left to go in 2015, Vancouver International Airport has marked a milestone.
Twenty million visitors in a year.
Passengers Charles and Kim were handed the surprise of a lifetime, as airport staff told them they were the lucky twenty millionth.
That distinction came with a $10,000 flight voucher for trips out of YVR and a prize pack of gifts from airport shops.
The milestone comes on the airport’s busiest day of the year. With holiday passengers both inbound and outbound, the airport estimates it will process 68,000 people today.
