As summer approaches it's once again time to keep our ears and ears open for news of summer airline embargoes and altered operations that may affect pet travel.
Take a look at last year's summer embargo information for an idea of what to expect, and remember to talk to a pet relocation specialist or do plenty of careful research ahead of time if you're planning to travel with a pet this summer.
We'll keep you updated as we go forward, but here it is: your first official summer pet travel news flash from United Airlines.
-Phoenix (PHX) will only accept pet arrivals before 9 a.m. and after 9 p.m. (this is the same procedure they followed last year).
-Palm Springs (PSP) will have an embargo in place through Sept. 15.
-Dubai (DXB) will have restrictions on brachycephalic breeds all year long.
-The new on-site kennel facility at O'Hare is in development and more news of it should be announced soon.
Keep in touch, pet travelers!
