Delta Amends Pets as Checked Baggage Policy for Liberia, Costa Rica

To ensure the best possible experience for customers traveling with pets to Liberia, Costa Rica, effective for tickets issued on or after May 30, 2014, due to the continuous temperatures over 85oF, Delta has amended its policy and will no longer accept the transportation of pets as checked baggage to Liberia (LIR), Costa Rica.  Pets travelling as checked baggage are also referred to as Animals in Hold (AVIH).
