Pet Travel Update: When Do Summer Airline Embargoes End, Anyway?

Summer is technically over, but the weather can remain unpredictably warm in many regions through fall. If you're planning to fly in the next few weeks, it's important to continue to make careful travel choices when moving your pet and to be aware of airline regulations.

Many airlines altered their pet flight procedures over the summer to ensure safety, and some will continue to observe modified rules and schedules for a few more weeks. In particular, Delta says it will continue to operate the summer pet program until Oct. 14, 2012 at all participating facilities except Atlanta, which will lift the rules on Oct. 1. Other airlines operate with their own procedures, so it's important to check with your carrier before you fly in order to avoid any surprises or delays.

Once again, here's the Master Station List from Delta listing effective dates for the summer pet program:
