Boundary Bay Airport or Vancouver/Boundary Bay Airport is located beside Boundary Bay and 2.5 nautical miles east of Ladner in Delta, British Columbia, Canada, 8.5 NM south southeast of Vancouver and close to the U.S. border. The airport, which opened 11 July 1983, serves mostly general aviation and includes facilities for aircraft maintenance, flight training, parking, and air traffic control training. Boundary Bay is Canada's fifth busiest airport by total aircraft movements, and the country's busiest general aviation airport. It is the location of the former Canadian Forces Station Ladner.
In December 2004, Boundary Bay Airport was acquired by Alpha Aviation. In April 2008, Alpha Aviation established a Fixed-Base Operation and Alpha Executive Air began operating regularly scheduled flights twice daily between Boundary Bay Airport and Victoria International Airport on Vancouver Island, as well as charter service using turbine pressurized aircraft. Many smaller airlines use Boundary Bay Airport's maintenance facilities. As of 2010, Alpha Executive Air ceased operations but Boundary Bay Air Services - Vancouver FBO is open serving business, corporate, and general aviation customers.
