Vancouver Airport has issued an advisory regarding current winter weather conditions.

While there are no weather warnings currently in place for Metro Vancouver, last night’s snowfall and the freezing temperatures in the forecast for Monday could cause for some delays for travellers.

“Passengers are advised to check with their airlines for current timelines and flight information, or check www.yvr.ca before coming to the airport,” said YVR in a statement.

“Passengers are also encouraged to leave extra time when travelling to the airport and to drive safely.

YVR is recommending travellers:

  • Check the status of their flight on their airline’s website or on YVR’s flight information section before coming to the airport
  • Check-in online, print their boarding passes before leaving for the airport or have it emailed on their mobile device
  • If driving, have a parking plan
  • Factor in time for travel congestion, parking and walking to the terminal

Travellers should also keep in mind that inclement weather form other areas of the province or country could affect their flight.
