YVR–Airport Station is one of the two southern intermodal termini on the SkyTrain's Canada Line in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The railway station serves both the domestic and international terminals of Vancouver International Airport (YVR), located on Sea Island, and provides the first direct, transfer-free public transit connection between Downtown Vancouver and the airport.

Trains depart every 6–7 minutes during midday and weekday peak service, every 12 minutes in the early morning and evening, and every 20 minutes in late evening.[2] The first train leaves for Waterfront at 5:10 AM; the last, at 12:57 AM.[2]

Like Richmond–Brighouse Station, YVR–Airport Station only has a single track. However, this is sufficient for a terminus station with YVR–Airport's frequency of service.
