Vancouver International Airport is en route to breaking its 2015 record for passengers transitng the terminal.
Spokesperson Chris Devauld says they could top last year’s count by nearly 10%.
“In 2015, we had 20.3 million passengers, and this year for 2016 we’re expecting over 22 million.”
Devauld says with tens of thousands of holiday travellers currently packing flights, today’s big numbers will help push the facility over the top.
“We’re estimating about 74,500 people will go through YVR today, and that’s the busiest day of the holiday season.”
He says delays are minimal but it’s always best to check your flight status online.
