Victoria International Airport (Airport Code: YYJ) is the 11th busiest airport in Canada with almost 2.0 million per year (2019 stats). YYJ was rated one of the top ten most-loved airports in the world by CNN Travel and is the 2012, 2014 and 2020 winner of ‘Best Regional Airport in North America’ by Airports Council International.
Victoria Airport Authority (VAA) is the not-for-profit authority that manages the safe and secure operations of the Victoria International Airport on behalf of the surrounding communities.
The airport is situated approximately 25KM (15.5 miles) north of Victoria. The drive to or from the airport takes you past the resort town of Sidney-by-the-Sea, the countryside of North Saanich, and Districts of Central Saanich and Saanich. The terminal itself is small enough to be ultra convenient yet, very modern as extensive improvements and upgrades have been completed over the last several years. Information on flight times, airlines, food service, shopping, currency exchange, parking, ground transportation, and other passenger services is all available on this website.
