Rate-Setting Strategies and Alternatives at Vancouver International Airport

WJ Advisors was recently retained by senior management at Vancouver Airport Authority (Authority) to identify strategies and alternatives to revise the methodology for calculating the rates and charges paid by key tenants at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). We focused on increasing the alignment of the rate-setting approach with key Authority goals and initiatives, such as more efficient utilization of facilities as well as cost competitiveness.

In 2014, YVR was named #1 airport in North America for the fifth consecutive year by Skytrax World Airport Awards, an honor that has only been achieved one other time in the history of this award.
