PSC is a small airport, making it quick to turn around for Fly-in / Fly-out. There are 5 gates. When you get off the plane it will take 1 or 2 minutes at most to walk from the gate and out through the security doors. We will meet you there.
If you try to book a round-trip flight, the airline might say “not enough time.” Instead, book two 1-way flights. This has worked every time. Please let us know if you have any questions about fly-in/fly-out.
Fly-in / Fly-out Preparations
When you come to the Pasco airport, you will carry your sweet little ragdoll kitten on the plane (in-cabin) with you.
Please bring a soft-sided kitten carrier with you (in-cabin carry on) such as this one:
Because the elapsed time between your flights will most likely be quite short, we take precautions to help expedite the process. We make certain to be at the airport ahead of schedule. We track your flights progress and adjust our schedule accordingly. Once you arrive, we will take an adoption photo of you and your new kitten, give you a small gift package and your furbaby’s papers (vaccination records, etc.) and say goodbye. All of this will only take 5 minutes or so.
If possible, please purchase a ticket for your kitten to fly with you ahead of time.
Once we say goodbye, you’ll simply take a 10-second walk over to the security line. If you’re unable to check-in for your departing flight ahead of time, you might need to go to the ticket counter which is about a 15-second walk. Once you’re checked in and have your kitten in-hand, you’ll pass through security and wait with your new ball of fur! You’ll have to hold on tight though because everyone else will be jealous of you!
And no worries…
Showing only a 40-minute layover can feel stressful but we’ve done this many times before and it’s not a problem as long as you are prepared in advance. The plane you arrive on is the plane you’ll depart on (as long as it’s the same airline) so even if your plane is late, the airline personnel still need a minimun amount of time to clean the plane and get everyone on board. As long as you are at the gate waiting, you’ll be fine! 🙂
