World’s First Airport Terminal for Pets At JFK

New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is adding world’s first airport terminal for pets. The $48 million terminal is currently under construction and is set to be open for business early 2016. The privately owned 178,000-square-foot facility, called the ARK will handle the more than 70,000 animals that pass through JFK each year, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, birds, sloths and aardvarks. It will provide both airside and landside services to board, kennel, quarantine, import, export and transport large and small animals.

Livestock will be greeted with Hay-lined stalls, and even penguins will be given their own special corner of the terminal to mate in privacy.
For dog owners, The ARK will offer a 20,000-square-foot luxury “resort” run by the company Paradise 4 Paws, complete with bone-shaped splashing pools, massage therapy and “pawdicures with colored nail pawlish.” Dogs can watch flat-screen TVs and their owners can check in on them via webcam.

Cats will have their own trees to climb. And all animals will have access to a 24-hour clinic run by Cornell University’s veterinary college.
Additional services will include transportation in dedicated climate controlled vehicles from aircraft, terminals, cargo facilities and other airport locations.
