Travelling with Pets

The airport is a busy place with lots of new sights and sounds, so for the safety of our four-legged friends we request that pets be kept in an airline approved travel kennel while in the terminals. 

Animals that do not require a kennel while in the terminal building include service animals or guide dogs and dogs used by enforcement agencies, such as customs or police officers.

Dog Relief Areas

Dog relief areas are available outside of the terminal buildings. The three areas are located on the Arrivals Level outside Door 1, Door 9 and Door 17. We ask that all owners pick up after their pets; waste disposal bags are provided.
