The VAA is a not-for-profit corporation. While the airport is expected to generate surpluses, these dollars must be re-invested directly back into improving the airport’s infrastructure.
Victoria International Airport (Airport Code: YYJ) is the 9th busiest airport in Canada with over 1.5 million passengers per year. Victoria is well served with more than 120 daily flights throughout North America.
The airport is situated approximately 25KM (15.5 miles) north of Victoria. The drive to or from the airport takes you past the resort town of Sidney-by-the-Sea, the countryside of North Saanich, and Districts of Central Saanich and Saanich. The terminal itself is small enough to be ultra convenient yet, very modern as extensive improvements and upgrades have been completed over the last five years. Information on flight times, airlines, food service, shopping, currency exchange, parking, ground transportation, and other passenger services is all available on this website.
Victoria International Airport was ranked 8th in the 2011 CNNGo poll ranking the 10 most loved airports in the world! Victoria is the only Canadian airport that made this top 10 list.
