Airport gets luxury terminal just for animals

Posted: Updated:

A U.S. airport is getting a new terminal just for animals, and it's costing nearly $50 million.

"The Ark" at the JFK Airport will feature customized departure lounges, suites with flat screen television, 24-hour medical care and a dog bone-shaped swimming pool.

The quarantine facility will be for pets, horses, birds and livestock. "The Ark" will be the world's only privately-owned animal terminal, and USDA-approved, full-service airport quarantine facility.

The area is expected to open next year.
