Choose your pets’ flight times carefully

You want to be sure your pet travels during the coolest parts of the day in summer (early morning and late evening) and the warmest in winter (midday). The cargo hold itself may be liveable, but wherever your pet is stationed en route to the plane may be another story. In addition, you may be able to avoid restrictions regarding pet travel on very hot days if you travel before or after the sun is at its most powerful.
