A new airline has been launched in the USA providing dedicated flights for cats and dogs. Rather than pets being held in the cargo storage area of the plane, Pet Airways lets their ‘pawsengers’ ride in the main cabin of specially converted airplanes.

It’s good to see pets getting a more humane travelling service on planes, rather than being kept in the cargo storage hold. Pet Airways is currently trialling the service in 5 US Cities, with prices starting at $150/£92, if the trial continues to be a success the airline will roll the sevice out to other areas of the United States.
