Vancouver International Airport has three terminals:
- the Domestic Terminal, which has recently given a top-to-bottom renovation
- the International Terminal, which includes a US Preclearance Annex for US-bound flights
- the South Terminal, which is a portion of the original terminal that is still in use. This is considered to include the floatplane terminal.
The International and Domestic terminals could be considered to be one very large building divided into two sections, while the South terminal is located in
a remote part of the airport. The South Terminal serves regional airlines which fly mostly within British Columbia. The International Terminal serves international
destinations, with most US-bound flights utilising the US Border Preclearance facilities in the International Terminal.
YVR is one of eight Canadian airports that has United States border preclearance facilities. The International terminal utilizes glass partitions to physically
separate US-bound passengers from others from customs through to boarding. As a result, not all airport retail shops are available to all passengers.
Free high speed Wi-Fi internet access is available in the International and Domestic Terminals.
