The British are coming to YVR Airport!

Britain is being celebrated all over Canada this week with the launch of Virgin flights, Branson’s visit, the Royals touring Toronto – plus a series of celebrations surrounding the UK GREAT Campaign. Here in Vancouver, The GREAT Campaign came to life at YVR yesterday with a surprise flash mob.

The GREAT campaign invites the world to experience what Britain has to offer. It celebrates British excellence in Technology and Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Knowledge, Green Growth, Heritage, Sport, Shopping, Music and Countryside. We want to reinforce that Britain is one of the very best places in the world to visit, live, work, study, invest and do business.


Dancers were dressed as the Spice Girls, The Beatles, Austin Powers, David Beckham, Elton John and Harry Potter, alongside Union Jack T-Shirts.
