What you need to know about checking-in for your flight

Our new signs are dynamic and will direct you to where you should enter the terminal to check-in for your flight, based on which airline you’re flying and which sector you’re flying to—U.S., domestic or international.

Look at the sign, match your airline with the pictogram of where you’re going and enter at the nearest door.

The signs also display the check-in counter number, providing further clarification for you on where to go. You can find this number at YVR.ca > Departing Flights.

Our new digital signs allow travellers to arrive and find the right airline check-in counter with more accuracy and ease. It also provides us with the ability to make better use of our terminal as it allows us to leverage different check-in counters to manage queues based on peak departure times with our airline partners.

So, how do I find my airline check-in counter?
