Tips for Traveling with Pets

Traveling with animals can be hard, but this expansion plan for the JFK international airport is going to make things way smoother with a terminal dedicated solely to pets.

The $48M project was given the most perfect name, "The Ark." The animal cargo will be a privately owned terminal for non humans.



According to the Telegraph "the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has signed a 30-year lease deal with Ark Development, an affiliate of the real estate company Racebrook Capital, to design and build a 178,000-square-foot animal cargo facility at the Queens, New York-based airport. The $48m project will create 180 jobs and generate $108m in revenues over its 30-year span, the organizers said."



As the architect of The Ark stated:

"For the animals who [will] pass through The Ark, as well as the people who own them, air travel can be stressful and confusing. Aligning the needs of quarantine with kenneling and elevating the experience for animals and their owners, our design team sought to create a comfortable, healthy environment for them all."

Until the project becomes a reality, we wonder if any other airport will adopt the same strategy.

Here is a gallery with the busiest ones in the world:
