Please check often for updates

Airlines with a flat rate are the best for flying a large dog. Always check before purchasing your ticket if that airplane will accept dogs in the hold. Transfers sometimes add an additional charge. Beware of purchasing a ticket with multiple airlines. You must confirm your pet reservation and price with each airline individually. Some airlines have temperature and flight time restrictions for dogs.
