Happy Tails Travel Explains the Problems of Traveling With Pets in the Summer Months

Hot summer temperatures create unique problems for pets flying in the hold of an aircraft.

TUCSON, AZ, August 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A common question asked by pet owners during the summer months is: "How come my pet can't fly in the summer?"

It is true that not every pet can travel from every airport during the warmer months but Happy Tails Travel has had great success sending pets by air, even when it is hot outside. Certain conditions must be met, however: the pet accommodation must be temperature controlled to within 10 degrees of the cabin, it must be pressurized, and it must be oxygenated for each pet.

Unfortunately, not all aircraft or airlines offer these ideal conditions - this is why it is helpful to use a professional pet travel company. Happy Tails Travel follows the same rules and regulations as the general public but its 19+ years of experience has given it unique knowledge of the specific policies of different airlines. Based in Arizona, the company prides itself on being expert in arranging travel during hot weather. Quite apart from the controlled conditions in the hold, pet owners need to know how their pet(s) will travel to and from the aircraft. Some specific airports have systems in place to ensure pets are transported to and from the aircraft in air-conditioned vans and that animals are boarded last and removed first, shortening their wait times on the hot tarmac.

Pets with snub noses, such as the English bulldog, may experience particular challenges in hot climates - occasionally, it may be inadvisable for these animals to travel. Happy Tails Travel can discuss options with owners of these breeds.
