Larry Berg

After 20 years, more than  300 million passengers, and five million take-offs and landings, Larry Berg is retiring from YVR.

As President and CEO for the past 15 years, Larry's commitment to our community, province and country is reflected in the pride we all take in Vancouver International Airport and its well-earned reputation as one of the world's truly great airports.

Whether it's new routes, runways, terminals, or the instant success of the Canada Line, Larry's leadership legacy reinforces his long-held belief that YVR will always be a work in progress, an approach that ensures ongoing economic benefits for British Columbia and a better airport for generations of future flyers.

On Friday, March 8, join us for lunch at the Vancouver Convention Centre East (Canada Place) as we celebrate Larry's contributions, and thank him for his business and community leadership.
