Flying Your Pets Update - For more information regarding flying your pets in and out of Mexico in airline cabins, you can visit this handy website: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/897/179/293/in-cabin-airline-pet-travel-to-mexico/. - Courtesy Baja Pony Express.
I recently had 2 people translate and provide a synopsis of the Mexican government Directives that apply to the 'no pets in cabin' policy which the airlines have just implemented. Both translators agreed on the basic gist of the document:
International Travel of Pets - Mexico has this compulsory Circular CO AV-07.8/07 which they have now started to enforce. It states that every licensee or permittee who operates or intends to operate services to the public passenger transportation in Mexico must comply with the requirements of this Compulsory Circular. Aircraft operators must also comply with the requirements of this Compulsory Circular according to the type of operation and characteristics of their aircraft. As I read this, this includes all flights in Mexico whether international or not.The bottom line is there's no point in petitioning the airlines; they are simply following Mexican federal law. As foreigners in Mexico, there are limits to what we can do to try and influence the government on this policy, but we are investigating what, if anything, we can legally do. Anyone who would like a copy of the Directives (in Spanish) can contact me by email at hamiltos12 [- at -] yahoo.com - Sheryl Hamilton.
