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.

"Air Canada congratulates YVR's leadership in being the first Canadian airport to launch with U.S. Customs and Border Protection Automated Passport Control that gives customers tangible options to use technology to expedite the U.S. pre-clearance process," said Nick Careen, Air Canada's Vice President Airports, Call Centres and Customer Relations. "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."

Together with its Air Canada Express regional affiliates, Air Canada operates more than 400 non-stop flights per day on over 85 routes to and from 51 U.S. and six Canadian airports.

From Vancouver, Air Canada operates up to 159 flights per week to 10 U.S. destinations.
