Pet Friendly Airports: IAD Pet Relief Area
We're continuing our pet-friendly airport coverage by once again examining Dulles International (IAD).
The fact that two of the five pet relief areas here are located inside of security set IAD apart from most other airports; this innovation definitely has the potential to make life easier for pet travelers and people with service animals. However, this also means that the pet relief areas are located inside, which requires a pretty technical system for keeping the area clean and sanitary.
Luckily, IAD had some fun when designing their pet relief area by incorporating astroturf grass with a cleaning feature underneath and even a fun fire hydrant. To see the nitty gritty details surrounding how Washington Dulles International's indoor pet areas work, check out this video made by a pet air travel researcher.
