IF YOU HAVE TO FLY

First and foremost, when putting your pet on a plane, make travel arrangements well in advance to avoid problems. Before departure:

  1. Have your pet checked by a vet. Get any necessary inoculations, a health certificate, and any sedatives or medications your pet may need.
  2. Check the airline in advance for instructions, reservations, special requirements and insurance coverage.
  3. Get a Federal Aviation Administration approved container and a travel ID tag.

If you plan to bring your pet on board, and if it's small enough to fit in the cabin area, you must notify the airlines in advance. Some airlines will allow a pet inside if it is in an FAA-approved container and will fit under the seat; it is odorless and inoffensive and the limit for the number of animals inside the cabin has not been reached. Usually, pets allowed on board are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Seeing Eye Dogs can sit in the aisle of the cabin at the owner's feet.

If possible, don't change air carriers during your trip. Moving your pet from one plane to another adds extra work, cost and stress. Write the words "LIVE ANIMAL" clearly on the outside of the container. You've seen how baggage handlers handle unmarked luggage.

Pets not accompanied by the owner or ones that are too large to travel inside the cabin must travel as air freight. Your pet isnít usually thought of as freight so this can be traumatic for both you and your pet.

Let the airline know in advance that you will be shipping an animal by air freight. You may need to bring your pet to freight loading two or more hours before departure. For your pet's welfare and comfort, be sure to;

SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE THERE WHEN YOUR PET ARRIVES

You are responsible for picking up your pet at destination. Pets not picked up in a reasonable amount of time (24 hours) will either be returned to point of origin at owner's expense, or placed in a kennel, also at owner's expense.
