The next time you head to PDX, things will look a little different. Temporary walls have closed off parts of the main terminal, and we've installed detours to help you get around the construction that's underway. It might take you a second to get your bearings.
There's, of course, a lot to look forward to. We're especially excited about the new airport designs, which are inspired by the Pacific Northwest's lush landscapes. We think it'll be worth the wait.
But in the meantime, getting used to all these changes might be a bit irritating — especially if you have a comfortable books-then-doughnuts routine. That's the setup to the latest comic from Oregon-based artist Aki Ruiz, who teamed up with writer JD Shadel to tell the story of a few travelers making their way through PDX in the not-so-distant future. Scroll on to see how our duo discovers what magic is happening behind the scenes.
Do you have plans to travel with a service dog or pet? We know that it comes with a few extra challenges. (In fact, the creators of the illustrated story above consulted with several guide dog trainers to make sure it reflected the real relationships between travelers and their helpers.) With that in mind, we’re here to confirm that we have two new indoor pet relief areas at PDX: one on Concourse C near gate C4 and one on Concourse D near gate D4. We also have two new outdoor pet relief areas located at the north and south ends of the lower roadway (arrivals level).
