Companion Air:
 "Companion Air is the first airline created specifically for pets and their
owners. We fly very safe and reliable jet-prop aircraft so that we can
operate out of small local airports, fly high and fast, and provide a roomy,
executive class interior. The use of more, smaller aircraft allow us to
provide services much more broadly and at a more reasonable cost. During
peak times we may supplement our fleet but the Companion Air fleet is
comprised of new aircraft purchased and configured for Companion Air, our
pets and owners."

 At the recommendation of our consulting veterinarian, Continental Airlines
will now require the following to reduce stress and heat exposure, when
shipping or  handling the above-mentioned breeds: Use 1 size larger kennel
than is normally required. Use a kennel with ventilation on 4 sides. (If the
kennel does not have ventilation on 4 sides, modify the kennel by drilling 7 holes in the rear
top and 7 holes in the rear bottom of the kennel using a 3/4 inch keyhole
bit). Acclimate the animal to the kennel by letting the animal spend time in
the kennel for several days before their departure. Do not place food in the
kennel during the flight, just water. Provide plenty of water to the animal
(including frozen water bottles with tiny holes punched in the sides makes a
great watering tool for several hours when placed in the kennel's watering
