It was unveiled Friday morning at YKA and Managing Director Heather McCarley called it an "exciting" moment for the airport.
"We're very excited to be unveiling our rainbow crosswalk. We think the location is the perfect spot because we're in the business of providing a positive and warm welcome to passengers through and to the Kamloops Airport."
She added the crosswalk fit with the airport's goal of "enhancing the customer experience," and notes the crosswalk was just "a modest expense."
Kamloops Pride President Kirstin McLaughlin said she was "absolutely thrilled" to see the crosswalk go in noting it's the first pride crosswalk outside of Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops.
"It's a phenomenal display of diversity and inclusion," she said. "I hope that when people walk through the rainbow crosswalk they feel inclusion and welcome and know that we are part of a city that celebrates difference and that people are welcome here."
The rainbow crosswalk is a symbol of acceptance for the LGBTQ community and are located in cities around the world.
