United Bans 25 Pet Breeds From Hold, Will Resume Flying Others

Usa Continental Holdings Inc. will ban 25 different dog breeds when it resumes flying animals this summer, four months after a dog’ s death prompted the air travel to review its policies for transporting pets.

The carrier will again acknowledge dogs and cats in the cargo hold beginning July 9 if the animal’ ersus guardian is booked on the same air travel, spokesman Charles Hobart said Wednesday. United is also teaming with United states Humane to “ improve the wellbeing of all pets that travel on” the Chicago-based airline, according to an organization statement .

United announced the changes lower than two months after a bruising week associated with public-relations fiascoes involving dogs. The French bulldog died March twelve after a flight attendant had your pet and its animal crate placed in a good overhead bin. In a separate event, the airline sent a Kansas-bound German shepherd to Japan. Usa also took criticism over the record of animal deaths within 2017, when it accounted for 18 from the 24 animals that died on the major airline.

The airline will not allow 21 dog and 4 cat breeds that are prone to actual problems from heat or additional travel stress, including bulldogs, boxers and Boston terriers. A complete list is available for the company’ s website.

Below its previous rates for the PetSafe program, United charged more than $2, 400 for some large animals upon some European and Pacific paths. Domestically, pets had cost $201-$963 depending on the animal’ s size.
