JetBlue facilitates pet travel

JetBlue has announced the launch of a pass that will allow pets on board its flights.

The air carrier has launched a new pass called ‘All-Your-Pet-Can-Jet’. The offer will allow the company’s customers to travel with their pets on board without having to pay out extra fees. This will enable passengers who are apprehensive about leaving their pets at home to take them on a vacation and enjoy the holiday with their companion at their side.

The airline’s offer is as follows; for USD299, customers can bring one pet with them. It is a requirement that the pet that accompanies the traveller needs to conform with JetBlue’s carry-on size and weight regulations for pets. The pet accompanying the customers can travel on any JetBlue flights between September 7 and December 31, and there are no holiday blackout dates. Without the new pet pass, each individual flight that the pet takes with its owner would be charged at USD100.

To benefit from the offer, pet lovers that do not want to be separated from their pets have until September 5 to buy a pass, which may be purchased directly at The company has placed certain restrictions on such passes, one being that routes to Saint Lucia, Barbados and Jamaica are excluded from the facility. Pets also need to have all their veterinary paper work in order to be allowed on flights. It is also believed that only four-legged pets will be allowed.

To make the pet pass worthwhile, customers will have to fly on more than three one-way trips with their pets before the end of the year.
