Vantage Airport Group (formerly Vancouver Airport Services or YVRAS) is an airport management company with 9[1] airports worldwide. It is a subsidiary of the Vancouver Airport Authority[2] which manages Vancouver International Airport.

In 1992 Transport Canada transferred operations of the Vancouver International Airport to the Vancouver Airport Authority.

YVRAS was part of a consortium that was going to privatize Midway Airport in Chicago. In April 2009 the deal fell through.[3]

Vantage provides management services to various airports owned by Vantage or via a consortium:
