Animals should be removed from transport crates and the empty carrier sent through the screening machine, the TSA said.
“When traveling with an animal, inform your airline and know its rules,” the agency said in its tweet.
Fly with a pet
Major airlines in the United States charge a fee for traveling with a pet on board a flight – sometimes beyond the cost of the plane ticket itself.
American Airlines and United Airlines charge $125 one way. Southwest and Delta charge $95 one way.
