This airline travel kit has everything you will need when using your Zinger aluminum heavy duty dog crate to ship your favorite canine friend.
AIRLINE KIT CONTENTS
When this kit is added to any Zinger crate it immediately conforms to the IATA 82 Safety Standard.
What is the IATA 82 Standard? IATA stands for “International Air Transport Association”. This organization has compiled a checklist of crate requirements that are referred to as the IATA 82 standard.
Most airlines require animals to be shipped in a crate that is “IATA 82” approved. This essentially means the crate must adhere to a certain level of strength and safety before it can be used to ship an animal by air.
All ZINGER™ crates exceed the requirements of the IATA 82 standard when our optional Airline Travel Kit is attached.
Our aluminum crates will not bust or be broken by rough handling or shifting cargo loads thereby safeguarding your dog en route. When you ship your dog in a Zinger crate he is protected.
IMPORTANT: Depending on the dog breed, an airline may demand special requirements in addition to the IATA 82 standard so make sure to check with your airline.
One of the most important considerations to remember when selecting your crate is its size. Your crate must be large enough to ensure that the dog can stand up and have sufficient space to turn around. It must be able to do so without difficulty.
Airlines have the right to refuse to fly your dog if the crate is deemed to be too small so be prepared and know your obligations before you arrive at the airport.
When in doubt about the correct size always go one size larger on your crate.
