With over two million pets being flown around the USA annually, Pet Airways is the world’s first pet friendly airline to cater specially for the transportation of our four-legged friends.
The airline’s launch means pets can be part of the travel experience, rather than being packed away to kennels.
But travelling Pet Airways isn’t quite what it seems. If you have images Labrador’s being buckled into their seats, the reality is slightly different.
Although Pet Airways prides itself by putting animals in the main cabin rather than the hold, the animals are actually tucked away in their own spacious containers. Plus they’ll have their own air hostess to ensure their comfort and safety throughout the flight.
Fares start from just $149 one way, and unfortunately only on routes within the USA.
As the website says, “On Pet Airways, your pets aren’t packages, they’re “pawsengers.”
