Vancouver International Airport has begun a massive upgrade of its self-serve kiosks, speeding up the check-in process through increased capacity and faster transaction times.
Currently, 119 of the new kiosks – which feature a 17-inch touch screen, high-performance boarding pass and bag tag printers, full page passport reader and a 360° LED status light indicating if the kiosk is free to use – have been installed in the U.S. check-in area; by year’s end, YVR plans to replace all of the older kiosks.

The new kiosks are also designed to be accessible for passengers in wheelchairs, with additional accessibility features including interactive keypads and an audio jack to assist passengers who are visually impaired, YVR said.
The new kiosks will replace the machines that were first installed in the early 2000s.
