MSP board approves pet kennel

The Metropolitan Airports Commission, which operates !Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP), this month approved a boarding and grooming kennel that will be located in a vacant building on the northern edge of the airport.
Travelers will be able to drop off their pets – and park their cars – and take a shuttle to their terminal 24-hours-a-day.
Patrick Hogan, spokesman for MSP, says this is a good way to create a new revenue stream for the airport while also providing a service for passengers. Americans, he says, spend $38.5B annually caring for their pets, making it a natural fit.
The airport will hold a pre-proposal meeting on November 14 with inquiries due on November 19. Final RFPs for those wishing to bid on the space will be due December 10, Hogan says, with an approval expected in February of 2008.
