A Note about Pets Traveling on Domestic Airlines...

Section 710 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century requires U.S. airlines that perform scheduled passenger transportation now must file reports with the Department concerning incidents involving the loss, injury or death of animals during air transportation. An airline is required to submit a report for any month in which it experienced a loss, injury or death of a pet during air transportation and also forwards the reports to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which enforces the Animal Welfare Act.. DOT publishes these reports monthly on their Air Travel Consumer Report web page. Click on the YEAR to then get a list of each month's report. Click on that month's PDF VERSION link for the month's full report.

The Airline Animal Incident Statistical Summary of the reports appears in a table format, usually found on the very LAST PAGE of each month's report. To see each actual individual report filed by the airline (redacted to remove identifying information about individuals, including the owner of the pet.), click the airline's name shown under the CARRIER heading in the chart (if the chart totals are all zero that means there were NO reports for that month). While the number of pets that are lost, injured or died on any given airline on any given month may be only 3 out of every 10,000 pets shipped (less than three one-thousandths of a percent) it still is in your pet's best interest to know what has happened and what if anything the airlines are doing to continue to bring this statistic down even more.
