Animals in the Airport


No person may bring an animal into the airport except an animal to be transported by air or service animals used in accordance with applicable statutes. All animals, including pets traveling by air, service animals and emotional support animals, must be restrained by a leash or properly confined in a traveling container and completely under control.

Animals traveling by air

Policies regarding passengers traveling with service animals, emotional support animals, comfort animals and pets may vary between air carriers and all questions should be addressed to the airline that you will be traveling with.

Pet relief areas

Designated pet relief areas are located at the Baggage Claim area (Level 1) across from the curbside pick-up areas. Waste bags and trash receptacles are available and all guests are asked to clean up after their animals. 

Passengers traveling with service animals requiring a pet relief area post-security should contact an airline employee for assistance.
