The "No Hassle" Airport


Forget the Kennel;
Take Your Pet with You and Leaving the Flying to Southwest!

     Traveling with your favorite furry friend is a lot easier now that Southwest Airlines provides a new service for passengers traveling with small pets.  For a minimal fee, passengers can bring their pet on board in a pet carrier.  The carrier must fit under their seat, must be leak-proof, and hold no more than two animals of the same species.  The $75 fee provides a cost-effective alternative to American Airlines’ fee of $100 and United Airlines’ fee of $125.  “But what if my pet has to relieve itself?” you may ask.  Not to worry - Long Island MacArthur Airport offers a convenient pet relief area adjacent to the airport terminal where you can bring your pet before or after flights.  Forget costly, impersonal kennel services; take your pet with you when you fly!
