With few exceptions the airlines that engage in Pet Shipping will allow you, the owner to book a cargo reservation for your pet – yourself. Do not be swayed by shippers or freight forwarders who claim to have special arrangements with certain airlines at special prices or claim to have special government security clearances. The airline’s price quote for pet cargo to the shipper will most often be the same price that will be quoted to you, the owner, should you choose to ship for yourself. Moreover, all of the major airlines that engage in the transportation of pets in their cargo holds are regulated by the USDA and must be in compliance with their APHIS Standards.
