Continental is committed to providing a safe and comfortable travel experience for all of our customers, including pets. Because we share our customers' concern that their pets' flights are stress-free, we have enhanced our animal acceptance policy to transport pets as cargo. Our program is called PetSafe
. Under this program, Continental does not accept pets as checked baggage.
The program offers the following options:
Customers can track their animals online at Continental's cargo Web site, cocargo.com, throughout their journey.
Continental will continue to accept small pets for travel in cabin in applicable markets.
Continental's policy for service animals, such as seeing-eye dogs, has not changed, and they will continue to be welcomed on board or as checked baggage.
Pets can travel as QUICKPAK
, Continental's cargo service offering same day, airport-to-airport delivery with features designed to ensure an animal's comfort and safety.

Safeguards for Pets Traveling as Cargo
Continental's PetSafe program will allow pets that previously traveled as checked baggage to experience these safeguards when they travel as cargo, keeping them safe and their owners reassured:
Dedicated 24-hour Live Animal Desk (800.575.3335 or 832.235.1541)
Confirmed booking prior to departure
Weather conditions constantly monitored at all points
The ability to track and trace the animal from its origin to its destination
Personal handling in climate-controlled vehicles for connections over Continental's hubs when the animal will be exposed to temperatures above 85°F (29.5°C) degrees for more than 45 minutes
Continental recommends (but does not require) that SENIOR DOGS AND CATS (over 7.5 years old) receive a more extensive health examination (i.e. liver and kidney screens).

Simply present your OnePass number at the time of booking your pet, and the miles will be credited to your account within 6 to 8 weeks.
