If moving by plane, many airlines allow pets aboard their flights, but some are more pet friendly than others. Compare the policies and requirements of airlines flying to your destination. Typically if your dog or cat is small enough to fit under the seat and inside an airline-approved carrier, they can fly in the cabin with you. Larger animals and exotic pets not allowed in the cabin will have to fly in the aircraft’s baggage compartment or be shipped as cargo. But these are dangerous pet travel options as those areas of the plane can be freezing cold and un-pressurized. Since your babies are not baggage or cargo a better option is an in-cabin flight by a dedicated pet flight service. It is the safest and least stressful method of travel for your furry family members. Popular services are Pet Airways, Air Animal and Pet Carrier.
