Pets to fly in the main cabin – not in cargo.
Pet Airways: First pet-only airline to begin flights July 14th, 2009
According to the American Animal Hospital Association, approximately 76
million cats and dogs travel with their owners each year.
Pet owners who want to transport their pets across the country are faced with limited or dangerous transportation choices.
A study by the San Francisco SPCA, found that of the two million
animals transported in the cargo holds of commercial airliners per
year, approximately 5,000 are injured in transit.
Put simply, passenger airlines are not a safe mode of transportation for our pets.
Pet Airways ensures pets are in the good hands of people who love and
know how to take care of pets. From the moment a pet is dropped off at
a Pet Lounge, the pet is always under the care of trained Pet
Attendants. Monitored by Pet Attendants, pets will fly in planes that
are fully-lit, climate-controlled and have the proper level of fresh
air circulation that pets require.
