United Airlines Announces Collaboration with American Humane for Safe Animal Travel

United Airlines Announces Collaboration with American Humane for Safe Animal Travel”

American. United also announced that it will resume operations for PetSafe, the carrier's program for cats and dogs that travel in the cargo compartment, later this summer.

United Airlines said it continues to review all pet handling processes and policies, including in-cabin pet travel. The airline has transported more animals in its cargo hold than any other US carrier, and has flown with ocelots, rabbits and geckos. "We look forward to a long-term collaboration and appreciate their expertise in helping us further improve our service on an ongoing and continual basis".

United Airlines is placing new restrictions on animals it will allow on flights after a series of issues with transporting pets this year.

United Airlines is scaling back its animal transportation program after several pet deaths and mix-ups.

The animal problems compounded a public relations nightmare for United tracing back to previous year, when a passenger was pulled from his seat and dragged down the aisle of a parked United plane in order to make room for an airline employee. A giant rabbit that was flying United from London to Chicago also died.

Short- or snub-nosed cat and dog breeds, like French bulldogs - the breed of the dog that died in the overhead bin - and strong-jawed dog breeds, like Mastiffs, will no longer be permitted to fly as cargo.

That puts United's policy more in line with that of its competitors Delta Air Lines and American Airlines.

United reported to the Department of Transportation the highest number of animal deaths of any US carrier: 18.
