MSY celebrates one year of using dogs to "improve the passenger experience"


Does going through security, fighting crowds, waiting to board a plane and all of the other stresses at the airport get you a bit on edge?

Perhaps a visit from a friendly dog will help.

The airport is celebrating one year of a program that aims to make people feel better through the use of man's best friend.

"Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) will mark the 1 year anniversary of its pet therapy program with a special celebration and cupcakes for the four-legged members of the MSY K-9 Krewe," officials said in a news release.

The announcement of the event says that the Airport partners with local non-profit, Visiting Pet Program.

The goal is "to provide canine therapy to passengers traveling through MSY, which helps reduce stress and improve the passenger experience."

A total of 13 dogs and their human companions have provided over 725 hours of volunteer service at the airport.
