Vancouver airport (YVR) welcomed the first Lufthansa A350 to Canada on May 1, and marked the eagerly-awaited return of the A380 to Vancouver on the newly-declared YVR Airbus Day! Our iconic double-decker will operate on the Vancouver to London route until September 30, 2018.
Airbus Day was a great opportunity for YVR to celebrate alongside plane spotters with a community
event bringing together all aviation lovers. The A380 is extremely popular amongst the plane spotting community for its sheer size. Because the route is seasonal, spotting our big bird is an exclusive event for Vancouver aviation fans.
A plane spotters picnic was held in Flight Path Park to thank the community with music, games, prizes, giveaways and free food. Attendees snapped pictures of all the incredible aircraft seen overhead and had a fun and relaxing time on what was a beautiful day in Vancouver.
