Vantage Airport Group (or Vantage, formerly Vancouver Airport Services or YVRAS) is an airport management company with 9 airports worldwide.[1]


Vantage Airport Group (Vantage) was formed in 1994 as Vancouver Airport Services (YVRAS). Vancouver Airport Authority and Vantage Airport Group have a strategic partnership agreement that allows for the sharing of best practices and expertise.[2] YVRAS was part of a consortium that was going to privatize Midway Airport in Chicago. In April 2009 the deal fell through.[3]

Vantage led the LaGuardia Gateway Partners consortium bid to operate and redevelop LaGuardia Airport's Terminal B. On May 28, 2015, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey voted to move forward on the Central Terminal Building Redevelopment Project, announcing LaGuardia Gateway Partners as preferred proposer.[4]


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

In 2006 the then Vancouver Airport Services was part of a French-led group, Hermes Airports, that won a tender to upgrade Larnaca International Airport and Paphos International Airport.
