Victoria International Airport Facts

Victoria International Airport serves Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It is 22 km north northwest of the city, in North Saanich, quite close to the town of Sidney on the Saanich Peninsula. The airport is run by the Victoria Airport Authority.

Like most airports that are run by local authorities in Canada, Victoria International Airport charges an Airport Improvement Fee for each outgoing passenger. As of March 2013, it was $10.00.

The airport is classified as an airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport can handle aircraft with no more than 450 passengers, when unloaded from the aircraft in stages, or 150 normally.

In 2014, YYJ served 1,650,904[5] passengers and had 166,524[4] aircraft movements making it Canada's 10th busiest airport in terms of passengers and sixth in terms of aircraft movements. It was British Columbia's second busiest airport in terms of passengers and aircraft movements.

There are two popular locations for plane spotters. The first is at the end of Canora Road, on the south-east side of the airport, next to a small cemetery. A second, lesser-known location is an open field off of Mills Road, near the Mills Road and Meadlands Road intersection on the north-east corner of the airport.
