VANCOUVER AIRPORT
Vancouver Airport facilities are in one large,
jet-age  terminal,  opened  in the  Fall  of  1968.
The airport maintains private rooms with
showers for in-transit passengers, as well as
nursery facilities for children.
The airport has a cafeteria, coffee shop, dining
room, bar, barber shop, post office and foreign
exchange and banking services. The public reception areas are spacious and restful, and the view
toward the mountains of Vancouver's north shore
is breathtaking.
On prior notice, Canadian Pacific offers interpreter services, and special attention for the
infirm. Mothers with young children receive
special care.
A stay of an hour, or hours, within the airport
building can be a most pleasant and relaxing
experience and Canadian Pacific Special Service
personnel are always available.
The airport is less than a half hour from
downtown with taxi, and limousine service
available. NEW VANCOUVER AIRPORT
