New Service Animals Area Opening At Detroit Metro Airport

Posted: Updated:
ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - Officials are set to show off a new spot at Detroit Metropolitan Airport where passengers can take their service animals.

Delta Air Lines worked with the airport to create the new Service Animal Relief Area.

It's located near gate A-34 of the McNamara Terminal and has been dubbed "Central Bark" by some employees.

A "ribbon-biting" ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday at the airport in suburban Romulus.

Inside the relief area are two "porch potties," one with simulated grass and a second with real grass, and even a fake fire hydrant.

Airport Authority CEO Thomas Naughton points out that connecting passengers with service animals used to have to go outside to find the relief area on the International Arrivals level.

He calls the new area "convenient, time-saving and easy-to-find."
