August deadline for pet relief areas

All airports in the United States that service over 10,000 passengers per year must have a pet relief area in every terminal by this August, according to federal regulation.

This is great news for the traveling public.

Initially, pet relief areas were focused on providing areas for service animals.  But interest and need has grown particularly in providing pet relief areas after passengers pass through airport security (not just in an outdoor area).
