Independence Day Pet Travel: United Airlines Holiday Hours

We know that many of you will be traveling with your pet this summer, and when flying it's always a good idea to double check a few things before you go. Case in point: some cargo facilities will be closed or will be operating with shorter hours on Thursday, July 4, so if your pet is scheduled to fly that day (not in the cabin) you'll need to note these changes.

According to United Airlines, for example, their cargo facilities at the following airports will be closed on July 4, 2013:

ABQ (Albuquerque, NM)

BDL (Hartford, CT)

BNA (Nashville, TN)

BOI (Boise, ID)

DTW (Detroit, MI)

GEG (Spokane, WA)

IND (Indianapolis, IN)

MKE (Milwaukee, WI)

OMA (Omaha, NE)

ONT (Ontario, CA)

PVD (Providence, RI)

STL (St. Louis, MO)

TPA (Tampa, FL)


Cargo facilities at other airports may be operating with shortened hours, so be sure to contact United or your pet travel specialist if you think you may be affected and have any questions. No matter what airline you're flying (or what day, for that matter), it's always smart to confirm your pet's reservations are in order before leaving home.

Whether you're traveling or not, have a safe and happy week, everyone!
