Last year a new airline just for pets started taking off to and from five major US cities. This has its pros and cons. It's great for pets to breathe climate controlled air and be in the cabin areas of the plane instead of the luggage compartment. But on Pet Airways you can't fly with your pet. And the other problem is... suppose you're not traveling to those cities.
Now, with a little help from pet friends at Sherpa Pet Group, which just happens to make carriers for pets that are okay'd by most airlines, it's a bit easier to fly with your pet on board. Their program, called Guaranteed On Board™, lays out the requirements for pet travel on each airline and, if you and your pet meet some specific requirements, Sherpa Pet Group will guarantee that they'll be no surprises when the two of you arrive at the airport.
By guarantee, I mean that if your pet is denied passage, the Sherpa Pet Group will reimburse you for the cost of your flight! That's a pretty good deal, don't you think?
Don't worry. You won't be at a loss for how to arrange carriage for your pet. It's all spelled out for you on the Sherpa Pet Group's website. The Group already has nine participating airlines!
That's the buzz for today!
