New airline...just for PETS!

Airline offers flights just for pets

Email Print Share DENVER (AP) — A new airline for pets is taking off with weekly flights to five airports across the country.

Beginning July 14, Pet Airways is flying pets to and from Baltimore/Washington International; Midway in Chicago; Rocky Mountain Airport in Broomfield, Colo., near Denver; Hawthorne Municipal Airport near Los Angeles; and Republic Airport on Long Island serving the New York City metro area.

The airline allows cats and dogs to travel in carriers in the main cabin of the plane, rather than the cargo hold. While some airlines allow small animals to fly in the cabin as long as their carriers fit under the seats, Pet Airways has no limit on size.

The carrier will not transport human passengers other than crew and attendants to care for the animals during flights. Pet owners will have to fly separately.

One-way fares start at $149. Many of the flights on the airline's limited initial itinerary are already booked full with a waiting list depending on the animal's size.

To prevent pets from getting sick, there won't be any beverage or snack service.

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

Well now that is interesting. Not sure I would want my pets flying without me, but I guess if I had a large dog this would be the better answer. Those cargo holds are hot.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

I'll be interested in this airline when they can:
1) Lighten up on their vaccine requirements (They require several vaccines I would never give any of my Havs), and;
2) When they fly out of the Bay Area.

Rumor has it that they plan to open in 25 more airports in the next 24 months.
