The airport also notes that fliers should check-in online and print their boarding passes before leaving for the airport. Alternatively, fliers can have it emailed to their handheld mobile device.

What’s more, a number of domestic flights flights, such as some to Victoria, Castlegar, Montreal, Nanaimo, Toronto, and Calgary, have been cancelled.

The Vancouver weather forecast calls for 15 – 25 cm of snowfall as a second low pressure system brings snow to the south coast.
