If your pet's journey requires it to fly more than one airline, there are some additional considerations to think about in advance. Arrange for your pet's flights to allow for plenty of extra time to change planes — your pet can't just sprint to the next gate or airport terminal the way you can.

So your pet can receive proper attention, prior arrangements are necessary with all the carriers involved. If a pet has to transfer from a Delta flight to a Delta Connection & Pet Travel,the Delta flight must be confirmed at least 48 hours before the scheduled departure time of the Delta Connection flight. That way we have enough time to make transfer arrangements between the two carriers and ensure your pet is safely delivered.
