Air transportation with pets

Some animals have no problem with traveling by air, while others seem overwhelmed by the experience. To cut down on the stress of air travel for your pet, make every effort to arrange for a direct flight to your destination. If your flight arrangements include transfers, your pet may be subjected to cold or hot weather during the process of changing planes.

Whatever your plans and destination, be sure to make your air travel arrangements well in advance of the departure date. Additionally, confirm special arrangements and fees for your pet’s travel, and obtain your airline’s requirements for pet shipping carriers and containers. Some airlines have special guidelines for the size and construction of pet carriers. Generally, the carrier needs to be large enough to allow your pet to stand, turn around, and lay down comfortably. Additionally, the carrier must be properly ventilated.

You may be required to arrive at the airport earlier than other passengers to arrange for your pet’s travel. Be prepared to add this time to your schedule.

In some cases, very small animals are permitted to travel in the airplane’s cabin with you. Check with your airline to see if your pet meets size restrictions and to find out about any particular vaccination or travel carrier requirements. Seeing eye dogs are normally permitted to travel free of charge in the airplane’s cabin, but the airline must be informed in advance of the dog’s travel.

Airlines do not permit pets less than eight weeks old to fly. Your pet’s age will need to be verified through the health certificate provided by your veterinarian.

If your pet is flying solo or is too large to travel with you in the cabin, it will fly separately in the plane’s freight area.

To reduce the risk of motion sickness in your pet, allow it to eat no less than five to six hours before the flight’s departure. Likewise, your pet should drink water no less than two hours before flying.

You may want to inquire about special pet insurance for the purposes of your pet’s flight.
