Update on Pet Airways
Pet Airways, the only airline designed specifically for four-legged pawsengers, this summer plans extended service. This is great news especially for rescue groups that are regularly finding homes for adoptable pets and looking beyond their home base. IMPORTANT: this ia possible solution if you have trusted friends or family members willing to adopt a cat from out of state. *
It will begin flights to St. Louis, Houston, Austin, Dallas and Orlando.
The Orlando facility will have a new style of pet lounge with enhanced services, such as grooming.
The new destinations bring the number of cities served by the airline, which began operations in 2009, to 14. The others are Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Omaha, Chicago, Baltimore, New York, Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale.
Airfare is minimum $149 each way depending how far in advance you book and the size of the pet. Flight attendants check the pawsengers every 15 minutes and given a potty break upon arrival before the designated recipient picks up the pet.
It's full service all the way!
*Beware of reported fraudulent schemes regarding pet transport. Pet Airways only services the continental United States and does not sell or arrange the sale of pets. Additionally, Pet Airways only accepts payment by credit card via our secure website. If you have been in contact with an individual claiming to use Pet Airways for transport of a pet for sale from outside the United States, or have paid for transport of a pet via Western Union, you may be unfortunately the victim of a scam. You may alert Western Union of a suspected fraud by calling
