Quarantine eliminated for Pets flying Continental to London

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 28 May 2003

Continental Airlines has been approved under the United Kingdoms Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), which eliminates the usual six-month quarantine for cats and dogs traveling to London.

Continental customers whose pets meet guidelines established by Great Britains Dept. for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs may travel with their animals on Continental flights to London without the pet being quarantined.

Quarantine has always been a hairy problem for pet owners who want to play fetch as soon as they arrive in England, said a Continental spokesperson. But now our participation in the Pet Travel Scheme makes the process as fast and smooth as a greyhound.

Before finalizing travel plans, customers should get further information on Britains PETS program at http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/quarantine/pets/index.htm

Continental also is offering double OnePass miles through July 14 to customers traveling with pets under the airlines new PetPass program. Through the PetPass double-mileage promotion, Continental customers will earn two OnePass frequent flyer miles for every dollar spent in transporting their animals as cargo (includes transportation, taxes and surcharges, but does not include the cost of excess valuation, kenneling or purchasing kennels). After July 14, PetPass will continue to offer one OnePass mile for each dollar spent, through Dec. 31, 2003.
