Istanbul – Turkish Airlines, an airline known for its vast global reach, has taken yet another step to enhance its customers’ flying experience, focusing on their furry and feathered companions.
User-Friendly Online Pet Booking System
Turkish Airlines, rooted in the cat-admiring city of Istanbul, has unveiled a groundbreaking online service tailored for passengers journeying with their pets.
This advanced system enables travelers to reserve pet carrier services while securing their own tickets via the website or the mobile application.
Gone are the days when passengers had to dial customer service to confirm a pet’s spot on the flight or face unexpected fees added post-booking.
This new system ensures a smoother, integrated booking experience for humans and pets.
Valuing the Bonds with Our Pets
In a recent press release, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, expressed the airline’s sentiment toward the initiative.
“We understand and value the importance of our passengers’ beloved pets. Our goal is to make the booking experience as seamless as possible, and this new service is a testament to that commitment.”
Indeed, with this launch, the airline emphasizes ensuring that pets travel comfortably and easily.
Passengers can opt for their pets to snuggle beside them in-cabin or safely in the aircraft hold.
Once the reservation is in place, all that’s needed is to showcase the pet’s requisite documents at the check-in counter.
Guidelines for In-cabin Pet Travel
It is important to note some key guidelines set by the airline.
Cats, dogs, and melodious pet birds like canaries and parakeets are permitted in the cabin.
However, throughout the journey, these pets must be contained in a carrier designed to conveniently fit under the seat before the passenger.
In this age of modern travel, Turkish Airlines sets a precedent, ensuring that pets are not just an afterthought but an integral part of the journey.
Their commitment to an “effortless premium travel experience” has broadened its horizons.
