Service animal relief areas opened at Miami International

Miami International Airport in Florida has officially launched the first of four new indoor Service Animal Relief Areas (SARA) enabling service animals and pets to relieve themselves, without having to exit and re-enter the security checkpoint.

The four SARA locations are equipped with a patch of artificial grass, two sprinkler heads, and a drainage system to maintain cleanliness, as well as cleaning supplies for owners. The SARA facilities are in addition to Miami airport’s three outdoor animal relief areas. 

Emilio T González, director of Miami-Dade Aviation Department, the airport operator, said, “Our new SARA facilities will help make traveling through Miami airport even more convenient for passengers with service animals or pets who prefer to remain in the post-security areas of the airport.”

The SARA program is one of several customer service amenities the airport is introducing this year including a yoga studio, airport-wide nursing suites and a children’s learn-and-play center.
