Pet travel has earned some very bad publicity of late. In March, a United Airlines flight attendant forced a dog to spend its entire flight in an overhead bin, where it suffocated to death. The next day, two dogs traveling in cargo—also on United—were mixed up and flown to the wrong continents. Condé Nast Traveler writes:

For many pet owners, the risks outweigh the benefits. But some travelers have no choice. And still others have found happy ways to bring their pets along by car, train, and plane. In fact, the percentage of dog owners taking their pets on trips more than doubled between 2006 and 2016, from 20 percent to 40 percent, according to a survey by the American Pet Products Association. And the news isn’t all bad. There are more pet travel options now than ever before. With the right preparation, your furry family member can tag along safely and happily. Here’s our advice on how to do it.

When Pet Airways first launched, it had tremendous opportunity to provide an incredible and comfortable travel journey for so many pets. Here, we share an excerpt of a story of on pawsenger, Finney, featured on the Huffington Post:

Are you taking a long distance trip this summer and wish you could take your dog? If you're anything like me, you consider your pet a key part of the family and his travel arrangements are just as important as yours. As a travel writer, I'm usually the one testing out new hotels and flights.

But this time, I wasn't allowed on board. It was pets only when my new rescue fox terrier Phineas a.k.a Finney flew from the East Coast to Denver on Pet Airways, the airline where pets, and pets only, fly in the comfort of the plane's cabin.

Pet Airways has been featured on JohnnyJet.com as the website of the week! Their article highlights how these days, pets are a part of the family, and when we decide to travel, we need a safe way to take them along for the journey! JohnnyJet.com writes:

For so many of us, pets are family. When we travel, we want to take them along and make sure they’re safe and happy. For some journeys across the country, driving takes too long or just isn’t practical. The alternative is flying, and with animals of a certain size, that means they must travel in cargo. If you’ve seen the news lately, you know traditional airlines can’t always ensure the safety of their pet passengers.
