Pet Therapy Program
Encourage your kids to be on the lookout for the Therapy Pets at YEG. You will spot these dogs and their handlers by their cute matching outfits. They help keep travellers calm and encourage interaction — make sure your kids say hi and have some cuddles!
We would love to answer any other questions you might have about travelling as a family or with kids, so please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming your family to YEG!
Activity book for fun things to see and do at YEG
Before you travel, print off the informative activity book and flip through it with your kids. Our Airport Volunteer Ambassadors also carry these with them throughout the terminal.
It is packed with 20+ pages of travel tips and fun things to look for and do at YEG and will help you plan your waiting time. Who knows, it might even inspire you to come a little earlier than you planned!
Tuck it in your kids’ carry-on along with some crayons so they can enjoy the fun activities in the lounges or on the plane.
