Media Advisory & Photo Opportunity - YVR Community Welcomes Home Jaeger Mah
VANCOUVER, Aug. 17, 2011 /CNW/ -
|What:||Jaeger Mah will be officially welcomed to YVR for 80 days and nights as he begins his assignment as the airport's live-in storyteller. Arriving on a Learjet 45 XR provided by London Air Services, Mah will get a bird's-eye view of his new Sea Island home before he is welcomed to YVR by Vancouver Airport Authority President and CEO, Larry Berg.|
|Media are invited to capture Mah's arrival on the tarmac and follow him as he walks to an in-terminal living room set up. There, he will meet with the airport community, public and media.|
