Fido’s a sweet, loyal pup. You’ve adopted him and he’s adopted you. It’s a match made in heaven. Of course he’s taking the final PCS journey with you. But there might be a few things you should know about air travel with your pet before you take off.
If your pet will be flying in cargo, the time of year matters a great deal, not only to you but also to many airlines. Since your pet will experience normal cargo loading/unloading procedures, they will experience some exposure to the elements. Many airlines have restrictions on when they will accept pets in cargo based on extreme temperatures. Some airlines block out certain months, others focus on the expected temperatures at both the initial and final destination.
