TERRACE MAYOR Dave Pernarowski and Kitimat mayor Joanne Monaghan get some help from Terrace city mascot Terra the Kermode Bear to cut the ribbon on the new information kiosk at the Northwest Regional Airport earlier this evening

THE FIRST information kiosk with a person behind it to help tourists find out about Terrace and area was officially opened at the Northwest Regional Airport May 29.

Dignitaries from Terrace and Kitimat came out, including mayors Dave Pernarowski and Joanne Monaghan, who took scissors in hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.

And the City of Terrace’s official mascot  Terra the Kermode Bear dropped by to help them out.

The crescent-shaped desk complete with brochures around it is a joint project between Kermodei Tourism and Tourism Kitimat and both cities will refer tourists to each other.

Information given out will be regional, and not just about Terrace and Kitimat.

Prior to this, the airport information kiosk was a tower with brochures on it only; that kiosk remains in the part of the airport where private planes come in, said Kermodei Tourism Society vice-president Bruno Belanger.

More than 40 private planes came into the airport last year, he added.

Kermodei Tourism’s Seth Downs said they’re looking for volunteers to man the kiosk around the times that the flights come into the airport.
