Air Canada has welcomed the launch of Automated Passport Control (APC) at Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

 The system gives U.S. passport holders the option of streamlining their airport travel experience by pre-clearing U.S. Customs at YVR.

"We look forward to this option being made available for Canadian passport holders. As the largest airline in the transborder market, Air Canada encourages other Canadian airports to implement the same technology to enhance customer airport travel experiences for the 21st century."
