Canadians have spoken, and they clearly love travelling through Vancouver International Airport.

YVR was officially named the "most reputable" airport in the entire country, according to a recent study.

Leger’s 25th annual reputation study surveyed over 38,000 Canadians about their opinions on various companies in a variety of different sectors.

Airports were one of them, and Vancouver's came out on top — even ahead of the Toronto Pearson International Airport. It was the first place on the list, with a reputation score of 71.

YVR wasn't even the only B.C. airport to make the list. Abbotsford International Airport came in ninth place, with a score of 25.

"The COVID-19 pandemic hit the airport industry hard and continues to have lasting effects," Leger said.

"Has the situation finally settled down, or will the turbulence continue? At this point, we are uncertain, but our Reputation study will continue to monitor Canadian airports’ performance year over year," it said.

Despite the uncertain times, Canadians were still able to find comfort at some airports in 2022.
