Pet Airways, A New Airline Just For Pets

by Dr. Chris

July 20th, 2009 Want your pet to travel more comfortably the next time you fly? Well a new airline is available just for cats and dogs. It was founded by a couple, Dan Wiesel and Alysa Binder. It had its first flight this last Tuesday.

There are no passengers, only pets, called pawsengers. To travel they place the pets in specially stacked carriers. Their planes can hold about 50 cages.

This helps to avoid having pets stay in cargo areas of airports which are notoriously bad for pets, so bad that the USDA regulates how long a pet can stay there for, the temperature, and the size of the crate.

The airline is sold out for the first two months!

They only serve Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles.

The average price is only about $250. (other airlines charge between $75 to $275)

This looks like a great alternative, but it seems like it might hard to drop your pet off at the airport and get yourself to your plane on time as well.

I guess we'll see if this concept works. So far it looks like good business for Pet Airways.

P.S. If you want a great way to keep your pet healthy and entertain them while you are gone for work, check this out: Platinum Fountain.

What an excellent idea of business, pet air lines. No one wants to take his pet with him as the only option for them is to board them in cargo, which is bad for pets. I am sure pet airlines will become a profitable business in future. I am looking for reviews about my hot essay, are they good enough to hire? Thanks

wow it is so good NEW

Well I had read about this in the news once, but it is even there now? I seriously doubt it would be even close to a profitable venture for the airlines at all. If at all, I seriously doubt its existence for more than a year. Web Based EHR
