When it comes to busy airports, John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York is well up there, with approximately 53 million passengers passing through each year. What you may not know is that JFK also sees over 70,000 animals pass through annually, many of whom have to stay for up to a month. Many private jet users will hop on board with their pets, and whilst those with pet passports can travel relatively freely without quarantine, some will need to do a stay in one.
Up until now any animals passing through JFK and needing to go through quarantine have needed to stay at Vetport, a privately owned facility, but soon they’ll be stopping off at the ARK instead. Billed as an exclusive terminal for travelling animals, and with a luxury hotel vibe to it, the ARK will provide a chic and comfortable environment for its guests. Bird, cat, dog, horse or cow, no matter what size the animal, there will be top of the range facilities available for the duration of its stay.
Dogs have got an especially luxurious set of facilities, with flat screen televisions, a bone-shaped pool and even a kind of spa with massage available. Owners can watch them in through the webcams in their doggy suites.
So, should you fancy chartering a private jet with pets to JFK, you can relax knowing your pets are staying in one of the most luxurious terminal facilities in the world.
