Alaska Airlines, Banfield To Jointly Help Travelers Prepare Pets For Takeoff

Alaska Airlines (ALK: Quote) announced an exclusive partnership with Banfield Pet Hospital to help travelers prepare their pets for takeoff. Banfield is offering Alaska Airlines customers traveling with or shipping their pets a free office visit, travel consultation and $10 discount on a health certificate, which is required for all pets traveling in the cabin, as baggage or as air cargo.

The airline noted that in addition to allowing customers to travel with their pets in the cabin through its Fur-st Class Care service, it also offers PetStreak Animal Express service for shipping animals via air freight in a safe and caring environment when their owner isn't traveling with them.

Besides, to further improve pet well-being, Alaska Airlines is implementing new kennel standards for animals traveling in the airplane hold, starting May 1, 2012. Kennels will require nut-and-bolt locks to ensure the animals remain safely in their kennel throughout their travel.
