Pet Shipping Service Required by Airlines
Many airlines now require that individuals moving Pets into the United States, must use a third party TSA known shipper. Meaning, in order to move a Pet into the USA, a Pet shipping company would be needed to make the proper arrangements through the airlines. In these times the airlines seem to be leaning in this direction across the board including domestic Pet airline travel as well, preferring to deal with a "known shipper" someone who is known by the TSA rather than a random passenger. Although it is not yet required by airlines for domestic animal transport, it does seem to be trending toward that in the near future. Bad news for the prices of Pet airline travel, but really good news for public safety and airline travel in general.
