What to expect when shipping a kitten on an airplane - Is it safe to ship a kitten on an airplane?
When purchasing a kitten from a pedigreed cat breeder, he purchaser is solely responsible for the cost of shipping, the kennel and health/flight acclimation certificates. Prices for shipping a kitten vary depending upon the airline used, destination and the weight of the cat or kitten being shipped, however, it ranges approximately $200-$400 which typically includes your health and/or acclimation certificates and a shipping kennel approved by the airlines.
Breeders generally make travel arrangements once payment in full has been made and will not reserve a flight until payment has been received.
Continental Airlines is a popular choice of many breeders as they offer the "quick pack" system. This system ensures the baby will not endure any harsh temperatures within their travel.
Different airlines fly to different destinations and all of them have slightly different ways of handling their pet programs so be sure to ask your breeder what they recommend as the most suitable airline for your situation and location.
The airlines either have a temperature controlled cargo space for the kitten or they have temperature parameters within which they are willing to fly a live animal. Airlines are very familiar with this procedure and problems rarely arise.
