Travelling by air
Make your flight arrangements far in advance. Many airlines have restrictions on total number of pets allowed onboard for any one flight and some companies do not allow pets at all. Expect to pay a $75 fee for your pets travel accommodations. While making your tickets reservation, find out any restrictions that may apply. Ask if you?ll be able to bring your pet onboard as a carry-on. This is highly preferable when compared against alternative of checking your pet in planes cargo hold. It is better for you pet if you plan to fly by direct flight.
Plan to visit your veterinarian within 30 days prior to your flight. Most airlines require an up-to-date health certificate. Different countries and states may also have their own requirements, so make sure to check in with proper authorities before your trip.
