Pet Moving Tips: Auto Travel

Pet Moving Tips: Air Travel

If moving with pets by air, contact the airline well in advance to check regulations and services:
  • Consider direct flights to minimize the amount of time your pet will be confined. Select a portable air-transport kennel that’s large enough for your pet to stand and move around a bit
  • Let your pet get accustomed to the kennel well in advance of the trip
  • Don’t forget to mark the kennel with “Live Animal,” your pet’s name, your new address and phone number and any special handling instructions
  • After boarding your plane, ask the flight attendant to confirm your pet has been loaded on the plane
