Pet Airways is the brainchild of Dan and Alysa Wiesel. In 2001 they found themselves traveling back and forth to Florida from California, but Zoe, their Jack Russell Terrier was a bit too big to fit under the seat. After a tense-filled trip with Zoe in cargo, Dan said there has to be a better way, and the idea of Pet Airways was born.
Today, we no longer fly in a pets-only configuration. We do however offer private chartered flight where you and your pet can fly together. You, a mate or two, and your pets, all aboard a plane that takes off when you want to take off and flies to a local airport close to your destination. The planes are small, but the experience is amazing. And of course your pet is right there with you.
Thank you so much for flying my Thelma True to Nebraska! Thelma was rescued from euthanasia at a shelter in California and was being cared for by Animal Rescue of Fresno (ARF) for four months. Thelma was overlooked by potential adopters because of her age. For some reason, no one wanted to adopt a 14-year-old dog, regardless of how sweet and adorable she may be! My beloved Grace (a larger version of Thelma) passed away in May.
