Pet Travel News: Summer Heat Wave Affects Pet Flights

We've told you about summer airline embargoes that could affect pet travel during these warmer months, but it's always a good idea to double check with your airline before you fly because last minute adjustments are often made for a variety of reasons.

For example, Last week we heard that Lufthansa will be suspending all pet flights from Spain to Frankfurt until August 21 due to the extreme heat that's expected to affect these regions. Heat waves may affect other airlines and regions (summer isn't quite over yet), so remember that it's always a smart idea to plan carefully and talk to airline representatives about possible changes.

Note also that some airlines and destinations impose restrictions when it comes to transporting certain breeds, particularly in the heat. Currently Boxers, Boston Terriers, Pugs an several other snub-nosed pets are not able to fly into Indonesia with Lufthansa when the temperature exceeds 80 degrees Fahrenheit -- another thing to keep in mind when planning international relocations.
