Transport Canada has announced $74.3 million under the National Trae Corridors Fund for an expansion at the Vancouver International Airport to expand cargo capacity, improve efficiency and reduce pollution.

Changes will enable larger aircraft to move between cargo facilities and the runway and:

  • increase parking space capacity to accommodate four additional widebody freighter aircraft
  • upgrade an access road
  • prepare the site for the construction of a new air cargo warehouse

Changes are expected to reduce the pollution generated by movement of air cargo by up to 25 percent.
