March 7, 2003 Companion Air, an airline intended to provide low-stress travel for pets and people, will soon begin operating in the United States.
Individuals flying in Companion Air's specially configured planes will be seated in the front, and their companion animals will be placed in a kennel area in the rear. Once flights are underway, individuals will be permitted to visit with their pets if there is no turbulence.
Some of the major airlines allow small pets to travel in the cabin, but larger and/or unaccompanied ones are usually placed in the cargo hold.
Because of the nature of its "specialty" service, Companion Air fares will be pricey. To view prices and for more info go to CompanionAir.com
Could a group of exhibitors flying out of the same airport approach Companion Air for a price discount for flying people and cats to the CFA International show in November?
