New airline for the dogs, and cats, comes to Colorado
July 9, 2009
DENVER – A new airline for dogs and cats is coming to Colorado.
Pet Airways will start offering flights across the country next week, including Rocky Mountain Airport in Broomfield.
Pets will travel in their own carriers in the main cabin, not in the cargo hold as with most airlines. But owners aren’t allowed on board and must fly separately.
Pet attendants will care for the animals in flight but there won’t be any beverage or snack service. The company wants to make sure no pets get sick during the flight.
The airline will also fly to Chicago, Baltimore/Washington International, Los Angeles and New York. Colorado flights will be offered two days a week.
Co-founder Alysa Binder says all flights are sold out for the first month and a half.
