I grew up with all sorts of pets around the house. We had dogs – lots of them, we had birds, we had chickens, we had pigeons, even sheep and those big wild lizards! Oh yeah, don’t forget the turkey. I mean, our house was practically a menagerie.
Those of you who love pets as much as my family does, you might have problems when it comes to traveling. Road trips surely make things a bit easier but if you are to fly, then the problems are compounded. Airlines apply excessive fees to pets on board. Even worse, the health of our pets may not really benefit from a flight – long or short.
That is exactly what Alysa Binder and Dan Wiesel were thinking when they started up Pet Airways, the first ever all-pet airline. This project has been four years in the making. The couple has focused their energies and expertise on the business. The result is a fleet of five planes which are specially designed to meet the needs of your four-legged family members.
How much will this cost you? Well, get ready to shell out about $250 for a one-way trip. If you are thinking that it is expensive, that is true BUT it is less than how much you would have to pay if you were to take your plane on board a commercial airline. You even have more advantages if you fly your pet through Pet Airways – everything has been customized for pets and all their needs are catered to.
