Petfinder has put together a new list for 2011 of pet friendly airlines, and there is another rabbit-friendly air carrier that we can add to the list.
Here are a few helpful links to peruse:
- Your Bunny and the Holidays: A comprehensive article by the House Rabbit Society about keeping your bunny safe in the midst of holiday plants, Christmas trees (and lights), and holiday guests.
- Bunny Sitter Guide: This checklist put out by Binky Bunny will ensure that your bunny sitter has all the necessary information to keep your rabbit happy and healthy while you are away visiting family or on a holiday vacation.
- Flying with your Bunny: If you plan to travel with your rabbit, our blog post from this past June lists airlines that allow rabbits to travel in the cabin. There is also a petition going around to persuade Southwest Airlines to permit rabbits in cabin as well.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that pet rabbits are allowed inside the cabin with you on Continental Airlines. Unfortunately, they were the only airline on the list that allowed rabbits in the cabin if on the plane at all.
Pet Airways offers a pet-only travel option as well. The cabin is climate controlled and all animals are monitored and taken care of by attendants.
