The nickname of this airport is a combination of Seattle and the neighboring city of Tacoma. Seattle's position on the northwestern rim of the northwestern United States makes it a natural departure point for cities in western Canada, Alaska, California and Nevada, and destinations in the Pacific Ocean. There are also many direct flights from here to locations on the Asian continent, such as China and Korea.
The city of Vancouver is easily accessible from this region, no matter what transportation you choose. The Canadian border is only an hour's drive north, and Vancouver is only about 40 minutes farther than that. Many commuters and travelers opt for a quick flight to save the time and hassle of border stops and gas stations. In fact, there are so many travelers that this is the busiest international route hosted by SeaTac. No less than three airlines, Air Canada, Delta and Alaska Airlines, all service this busy route, and finding deals on flights is relatively simple even if you can't plan in advance. Holidays tend to be busier and more expensive than other times, but your schedule will likely not be effected in winter, as Vancouver International Airport rarely sees any heavy snowfall.

Good summer weather brings cyclists, hikers, and boaters. Skyscanner's handy search engine can help you find the right campground, hotel, or resort no matter when you decide to visit.
Vancouver Airport Transportation OptionsBefore 2010, the only public transportation available from YVR to the city and surrounding areas was a rather unreliable suburban bus. Those with the means could opt for a private car or a taxi. The Winter Olympics that took place in the nearby Whistler resort led to several improvements in this area. The sleek, state of the art Millennium Line was added to the already existing elevated train system, and today it can get you to one of the many suburbs or right into the downtown core very quickly for a modest ticket price. Tour buses from both the city center and south of the border also tend to make a stop at the airport.

That means there's no need to board a shuttle or train if you're switching from one to the other. Signage is everywhere, in a plethora of languages, so finding your way about is also fairly easy.
