A flight for our furry friends

BARK, the dog toy company, has teamed up with a jet charter service to launch BARK Air, a luxury airline just for doggos of all sizes. 

On Instagram, the company announced, “Every single detail of this flight experience has been crafted with a ‘dogs-first’ mindset. It has taken 10 years, but we are finally confident that we can provide all dogs with the air travel experience they deserve: one that puts them first.”

BARK Air’s plane layouts are “dog-centric,” giving pups the chance to socialise and make new friends in the sky. 

Each ticket includes one human to accompany their dog, and extra tickets can be purchased for additional passengers. However, no one under 18 is allowed to fly on this airline. 

The first flight took off on Thursday, traveling from New York to Los Angeles.

In an Instagram post celebrating the inaugural flight, the airline wrote, “Right now, at an altitude of 30,000 feet, there is a flight filled with dogs.”

They added, “Unlike any flight before it, these dogs are not merely an afterthought, nor are they treated as cargo or a burden to the crew and fellow travelers.”

According to the official website, BARK Air is the world’s first air travel experience designed primarily for dogs, with their human companions as a close second. They offer “white paw service” with treats, earmuffs, and beverages for canine customers, with no size or breed restrictions. 

How did people react?

People showed their support in the comments section. 

One user wrote, “Thanks for what you guys started! Yes, we are aware the prices are high… but this is a part of the process… eventually they will become affordable…I am never letting my best friend in the cargo of those evil airlines. If necessary, I’ll pay that premium and support you guys during my move to Europe!”
