Oscar Newman® Partners with Pet Airways

Oscar Newman Doggie Fashionistas Fly the Friendly Skies with Pet Airways

Geneva, IL - April 28, 2009. Oscar Newman® provider of luxury pet apparel and accessories is pleased to announce its partnership with Pet Airways, which launched its reservation engine on their website this April. "Oscar Newman believes in providing the absolute best lifestyle we can afford to give our pets", explains Charisa Antigua, CEO and owner of Oscar Newman LLC. "Providing safe, comfortable air travel is just another facet to this lifestyle."

Pet Airways, is the first pet-only airline dedicated to pet-friendly travel. Cats and dogs fly in specially equipped planes that are climate controlled for their comfort, and pets are always under the watchful eye of a trained Pet Attendant. "We travel frequently with our dogs", said Carmina O'Connor, co-owner of Oscar Newman LLC. "And we are very aware of the stresses and dangers that air travel presents to pets. Safety and comfort has always been a main concern when we fly with our fur-babies and we believe that safe and comfortable travel should be available for every pet."

So when Alysa Binder, co-founder of Pet Airways approached Oscar Newman with a partnership proposal, Oscar Newman was more than happy to jump on board. According to Pet Business magazine (April 2009), more and more pet owners want to travel with their four-legged companions. Many companies are taking notice. Numerous hotel chains like Marriot, Holiday Inn, and W Hotels now accommodate pets and are offering special pet packages for their pet guests.

The pet travel trend is gaining so much in popularity that even car companies like Honda and Toyota have begun offering more pet-centric designs in their vehicles. Pet travel gear and accessories are becoming common in pet stores and boutiques. "When we used to travel just two to three years ago, I would be the only person on the plane with a dog." said Antigua. "Now, recently on a flight to LA, there were three other dogs on the same flight as myself, not to mention the numerous other dogs I saw in the airport as well!" That's great for pet owners with small pets that fit under the seat, but pet owners with larger pets either have to leave them home or put them in cargo.

Now with Pet Airways, all pet owners have the option of safe travel for their pet in the main cabin of a plane, regardless of the size of the dog. And when the occasion calls for dress up time, Oscar Newman outfits can be purchased at special prices by Pet Airways MyPAWS Club members. Pet Airways will start flights to and from New York, Washington D.C./Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles this summer.
