Back in 2009, we wrote about the limited options rabbit owners had when flying with their rabbit(s).
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.
Along with Continental Airlines, rabbits can now fly in-cabin on WestJet. However, Pet Airways (a pet-exclusive airline), which used to accept rabbits, now no longer does.
During the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in all the festivities. But make sure your bunny is safe and comfortable during these bustling times.
Here are a few helpful links to peruse:
Petfinder put together a list of the top 5 pet-friendly airlines in 2009.
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.
