RICHMOND, BC, June 8, 2016 /CNW/ - Vancouver International Airport (YVR) invites media to sneak a peek at its newly-opened pet relief area in the U.S Departures Terminal. This unique facility, the first of its kind located post-security at a major airport in Canada, was built to accommodate passengers travelling with pets. Whether they be companion dogs, assistance animals or adventurous on-board, four-legged flyers, YVR has created a far more accessible and convenient relief area for dogs at the airport.

Access to new pet relief area and opportunity to interview spokespeople. An assistance animal will be onsite for photo ops.
