    A new 'pet relief' area has opened in the international air terminal at JFK to help passengers taking their dogs on a long flight

    New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is going to the dogs – and cats – as it opens its ‘pet relief facilities’.

    The 70-square-foot room, at JFK’s sprawling Terminal Four, allows dogs and other animals to relieve themselves without needing to exit the building to find a place to go outside — a step that requires an annoying second trip through the security line.

    The door is marked with a paw print between the men’s and women’s rooms and inside is some green turf and a fire hydrant.

    A dispenser of plastic doggie bags and a hose is provided for the owners to clean the area up for the next pet.

    ‘We had seen an increase of passengers traveling with pets and we decided to do it sooner rather than later,’ said Susana Cunha, vice president of the management company that operates the terminal.

  • Airlines are giving N.Y. airports much-needed makeovers

      0 comments

    On Wednesday, JetBlue passengers will get their first glimpse of the carrier’s new international arrivals concourse at New York’s JFK airport.

    The space, which will offer JetBlue’s international passengers the convenience of clearing customs and making connections within the same terminal for the first time, is a milestone of sorts for the airline. But it is also the most recent example of how New York airports are starting to get badly needed makeovers, with airlines beginning to offer the sleek terminals and modern amenities critics say have been glaringly absent from one of the most important air travel markets in the world.

    “New York is the most competitive and most prestigious airline market in the country, and perhaps, the world,” says Henry Harteveldt, travel industry analyst with Atmosphere Research Group. “The growing volume of long-haul international flights at other U.S. gateways increases the competitive pressure on New York to make sure its airports can deliver efficient, pleasant experiences or the region risks losing those passengers.”
