The Vancouver International Airport is sharing a sneak peek of its Pier D Expansion, which includes a "glassed-in island forest with access to the outdoors."
With the expansion project complete, B.C.'s largest airport is showcasing some of the highlights in a short video. In addition to the island forest, the expansion also includes eight new gates, an immersive digital experience and a yoga, prayer and quiet room.
"This was a significant project in the history of YVR and our largest expansion since 1996," states a release.
Due to COVID-19, the airport says plans to open the facility are on hold. "The Pier D Expansion is a strong investment in our future at YVR and positions us well for when air traffic rebounds to pre-pandemic levels."
The airport adds that over 500 individuals played an instrumental role in the project.
