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.
