Petrelocation.com - Breaking news from our Northwest Pet Airline rep regarding the Northwest Airlines and Delta Airlines merger, and what it means to people booking their pets directly with these airlines:
Its official! Northwest Airlines has joined Delta Air Lines, creating the worldҒs largest airline.
What does this mean for you? For the immediate future, its business as usual. Delta Cargo and NWA Cargo will continue to accept live animal shipments, subject to existing live animal acceptance policies, procedures and restrictions, which will remain in effect until further notice. Delta and Northwest are working on harmonizing cargo policy, products and procedures; until such time, you should continue to ship your live animals with Delta and Northwest as you always have. If your live animal shipments are booked on Northwest, you should tender/recover your animals at the Northwest cargo facility. If your live animals are booked on Delta, do business directly with Delta. Although the integration process is already well under way, it will take 12-24 months to complete. During this time, Delta Cargo and NWA Cargo will continue to take great care in transporting your live animals.
Looking forward, the new Delta Cargo will provide new opportunities through a truly global network. The coming year will bring new routes and cargo capacity allowing you to conveniently ship your live animals across the globe.
