If you’re like me, you always want your pets to go with you wherever it may be. But, I can’t bring myself to ever put Abby in a crate in cargo on a plane. She’s not cargo! So, like most of you, Abby goes to a kennel when we go out of town, or, if we’re lucky, she goes with a pet sitter. Traveling also becomes more complex and expensive because of Abby, and it’s not her fault! There has to be a better alternative, and there is!
Pet Airways is an airline just for pets! Your pet rides in the main cabin and an attendant checks on them every 15 minutes. They also monitor the last time your pet had a restroom break, so that they remain comfortable and don’t have to hold it for too long like on normal commercial flights. As the airline states, “You see, on Pet Airways, your pets aren’t packages, they’re Pawsengers.™ And every step of the journey, we’ll take care of them as if they were our own”. Pet Airways is also priced the same as other commercial airlines and sometimes less! Think of all the extra money you’ll save when you don’t have to board your pet when you go out of town.
Currently, they only fly to 9 major cities including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Phoenix. For a complete list check out their site at www.petairways.com. They don’t currently service Houston, but I’m sure they will soon! I hope they do, so Abby can become an official jetsetter!
