Well it’s happened. A new way to pamper your pets... Pet Airways now offers air travel for pets in a way that no other airline does and it provides a new dimension to the job description of flight attendant!
Pet Airways - The pet only airline, where pets fly in the main cabin, not in cargo! At this airline, they believe that travel for your best friend should be a comfortable, safe and pleasant experience. Their PAWsengers fly in their especially equipped planes that are climate-controlled with fresh, cool air for maximum comfort, and always under the watchful eye of one of their trained Pet ‘Flight’ Attendants.
In-Flight Pet Attendant - Full-time
Pet Airways is now the official first and only (thus far) pet-only airline, where your pooch, (and other pampered pets) fly in the main cabin, not in cargo down below.
Dan and Alysa (owners) have a dog lovers story and in short they state that they had a dog named Zoe. Now like most pets, Zoe was a tad loved (Zoe is now in doggy heaven) and was seen as a member of the family. Does this ring a bell with the dog in your family?
Anyway... Zoe was of course a smart dog and off course a much loved dog that could not be left at home on vacation or heaven forbid left in a boarding kennel (home/palace)! So where-ever Dan and Alysa went for holidays so too did Zoe. Obviously though, pet air cargo (below the main cabin) is not the style of travel required and demanded by Zoe so vacations were kept close to home. Ohhh not to be owned by a dog... and a Jack Russell Terrier at that!
However for the millions of pooch lovers out there they are the head of the family and let us not forget it!
Dan and Alysa said, “That they met lots of neighbours, friends and even complete strangers who felt exactly the same way.”
So what was a travel solution that would suit or should one say be approved by Zoe and every other pampered pooch out there too?
Yes you guessed it... Pet Airways!
Instead of trying to convince the ‘human airlines’ to treat pets better.... indeed, why not simply create an airline ruled by the superior race of the four legged variety and rule the skys with mutts in the air on Mutt airways, well lets up market it a little and call it Pet Airways!
Yes, Zoe the brilliant entrepreneur woofer was the inspiration to the new-way in ‘PAW-senger’ travel and Pet Airways was born.
Obviously there is a proven limit as to the brilliance of any
PAW-senger (or maybe there’s not), and In-flight Pet Attendant / Slaves are required.

And what planes will YOUR LORD AND LADYSHIP travel on?
None less than the aircraft with an impeccable safety and reliability record, the Beechcraft 1900.

And don’t worry about a thing because the cabins of the planes have been especially decked out to provide the up-most in safety and comfort for your ruler of the household. Yes every PAW-senger travels in an individual carrier using the secure and proprietary safety system of Pet Airways
