Jacksonville Airport opens ‘restroom’ for pets

Traveling pets now have their own special relief area at Jacksonville Airport in Florida. The pet and service animal relief area is located past security, between concourses A and B, and is available to use while pets and their owners wait for a flight.

The spot is made of an artificial turf product that drains, allowing it to be hosed down. Underneath, the floor slopes to a sanitary sewer drain, and an automated system flushes the area every 45 minutes. Special air handling equipment keeps it odor free.

A mock front porch area, seating, a hand-washing sink, a pick-up bag dispenser and waste receptacles complete the facility, and the airport’s PA system has been extended, so that pet owners can still hear travel announcements. CCTV is also in operation.

Steve Grossman, CEO of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, said, “We know there are many pets and service animals traveling through our airport, and we are pleased to offer this amenity to make their experience even more enjoyable.”
