Service Animal—Pet Relief Airport Sign
Service Animal—Pet Relief Airport Sign

Read Time: 3.5 minutes

Humans aren’t the only ones looking for a relief area.

Beginning in 2009, the Department of Transportation required all airlines to make sure there are animal relief areas at airports, and escorts to those relief areas, for any passenger traveling with a service animal. As a result, airports everywhere have created and expanded animal relief areas that are open to all pets as well as service animals. Most animal and pet relief areas were located outside the airport terminals.
