YVR continues social media domination with airports-as-Pokémon tweets

Apr 19 2019, 12:35 am

The Vancouver International Airport has once again proven why their Twitter page ranks among the best.

While most airports are strict on maintaining a stern corporate image to the public, the social media gurus at YVR are never afraid to have some lighthearted fun.

They’ve even won an award for it too — last December, Twitter named @YVRAirport for creating the best banter in Canada in 2018.

The social media giant wrote that the airport “brings a new level of fun and self-awareness to #AirportTwitter, consistently interacting with flyers, other airports and other accounts from Vancouver and far beyond.”

Fast forward to 2019 and the YVR Airport continues to prove why they won that award — just check out their latest banter on airports as Pokémon.

It didn’t take long for other airports to join in on the fun.

And of course, when the people started calling, YVR’s Twitter page was ready to answer.

By the end of it, even post-secondary schools found their way in.

But with several airports and a couple of schools down, one question does remain.

What Pokémon would the Vancouver International Airport be?

To be fair, given Vancouver’s unending rain, a water type pokemon seems only fitting.
