This impetus for this post was a photo sent to me a couple of days ago by my friend Lisa — a lady who doesn’t fly with her dogs, and who reached Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) at the end of a long, long day. She kindly texted me a photo of the pet relief area at Logan’s Terminal A, which services Alaska, Delta, and United:
“Not exactly de luxe,” was her comment, and she’s got that right. I do wish I could see how the airport has handled the “floor” of the pet relief area — I don’t see any kind of a tray to hold what looks to be mulch laid down on the concrete, and that makes me wonder how they keep the place tidy. There are poop bags and a waste basket, as you can see. The gate is in the far corner (you can just make out its top, above the word “petport”).
Here’s a map showing where this particular area is located:
According to the airport’s website, there are pet relief areas outside the baggage claim areas of all four terminals, so if you’re arriving at Terminals B, C or E, click on “Go Inside Logan Airport,” select the terminal for your airline (don’t know which one that is? try each terminal in turn, and click on the button in the lower left corner that says “Terminal X airlines”), choose the baggage claim level view, and click on “Services.”
If your travels take you to Logan, would you let us know if the other pet relief areas look like this one? And if there are good alternatives, would you make a note of them? In the meantime, I’m adding this post to Dog Jaunt’s handy guide to airport pet relief areas.
