The Most Pet-Friendly Airlines
- Last updated on January 24, 2012
Pet-friendly airlines include the following: Air Tran, British Airlines, Continental Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Jet Blue, KLM, Lufthansa, Pet Airways, Northwest Airlines and Royal-Dutch Airlines.
Pet Airways is the best choice of pet-friendly airline. They are a pet-only airline where all pets travel in the main cabin, not in cargo. They provide individual flight kennels with fasteners to prevent any accidental movement. The cabin is, of course, climate-controlled and pressurized. Pet attendants check on pets every 15 minutes, and if a pet needs emergency care, the plane will divert to the nearest airport.
Because Pet Airways only flies out of a few major airports, other commercial airlines need to be considered.
