Clayton Perlman: Traveling with your Pet – Airline Policies

Clayton Perlman understands that traveling by plane with your pet can be a stressful experience, especially if it is not something you do often. Each airport has its own policies and quirks, and on top of that, each individual airline enforces different procedures. Further, traveling with a pet can compound all this into an even more confusing event. There is a lot of information to know before your trip and it can be easy to miss important details that can result in you and your pet being denied boarding because an airline travel requirement is not met.

 

Humane Travel

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has compiled a list of requirements to ensure humane travel conditions for pets on all flights, regardless of the airline. These travel requirements address food, water, crate or carrier size and condition, ventilation, temperature, as well as other considerations. Airlines will refuse to allow your pet to fly if they feel the pet will be in unsafe conditions, shares Clayton Perlman.

 

Airline Pet Policies

Every airline is different and has different pet travel policies, so it is always best to check with your airline directly, explains Clayton Perlman. Remember to ask about the maximum number of pets, carrier size requirements, cost, and whether your pet is considered an allowable animal.
