My mom and dad love to travel. Naturally I want to be part of their adventures, but it really takes it’s toll on me. After a bit of research, I discovered some airlines and airports are making tremendous efforts to accommodate the needs of pets! I also learned that a new federal regulation now requires airports that serve more than 10k passengers to have pet-relief areas. As I get older, I really appreciate this. When you gotta go, you gotta go!
- Delta offers a GPS tracker for flying with dogs. Owners can see the temperature and location surrounding their 4-legged friends.
- On American Airlines for an additional $125 when you buy a first class ticket on select flights, dogs can fly in a ‘cuddle class.’ These are ventilated cabins designed for the pet carriers next to the owner’s seat. I get to travel next to my mom!
- JFK Airport in Queens, NY is unveiling a 178,000 square foot pet terminal dubbed the Ark at JFK. Sounds like a kingdom! It will have a play area, spa (massages!), grooming facility, vet services and a bone shaped dog pool. I hate the water, but would definitely dip a paw in!
Humans are hearing our barks / meows! Can’t wait till my next trip. #stayinspired!
