Vancouver International Airport selects LAT Multilingual to engage with Chinese travellers

LAT Multilingual Translation & Marketing, a leading translation and multicultural marketing firm with its head office in Vancouver, is proud to announce the renewal of its partnership with Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Since 2016, LAT has worked closely with YVR's Communications Team to engage with Chinese audiences through popular social media channels WeChat, Weibo, and now RED.

LAT's expertise in translation, content adaptation, localization, and digital marketing has been instrumental in helping YVR connect with Chinese locals and visitors, achieving high levels of engagement on Chinese social platforms.

"We are delighted to continue our partnership with YVR," said Lise Alain, LAT's President. "We share a commitment to facilitating communication across cultures and languages and are proud to have achieved such high levels of engagement for the airport on Chinese social platforms. There's obviously a strong need."

"We are thrilled to continue working with LAT Multilingual to engage with our Chinese audiences on social media platforms," said Christopher Richards, Marketing Manager at YVR. "LAT's team has been a great partner for us, providing impeccable service and keeping us informed of best practices in a fast-changing landscape."

YVR already sees high levels of engagement on all its social platforms. However, Chinese communities are typically on different ones and require a dedicated team. Since YVR is committed to actively engage with all travellers, being able to reach the Chinese communities through the most popular Chinese social apps allows the airport to offer a more inclusive and welcoming environment.

Vancouver airport celebrates 25 million annual passengers

Vancouver International Airport (YVR) served its 25-millionth annual passenger, two years ahead of forecast. This accelerated growth can be attributed to a strong B.C. economy and an impressive three years of air service development due to ConnectYVR—YVR's five-year aeronautical rates and charges program. ConnectYVR rewards airlines for growing their services at YVR as a means to create more jobs, increase access to global destinations and open additional markets for B.C. goods.

YVR is operated by Vancouver Airport Authority, a financially-independent organization that is governed by a non-political Board of Directors appointed from the community. Every dollar earned by the Airport Authority is reinvested into the operation and growth of the airport to improve facilities, enhance services, reduce costs and support community initiatives. YVR's unique operating model allows for greater support and investment in the community, thereby creating jobs and driving economic and social benefits.
