Delta's tracker notes a pet's location, the angle and position of their transport crate and their surrounding temperature

In a decade where it seems airlines are cutting back on costs (and amenities) to compete, Delta Air Lines is offering a pet tracking service as a benefit for their customers.

In the past five years, Delta Air Lines has had 51 pet-related deaths occur—the most recorded deaths for any airlines. To help reduce this number and ensure pets reach their destinations, they offer GPS trackers for owners who would appreciate this extra layer of security.

The tracker notes a pet’s location, the angle and position of their transport crate and the temperature. If a dangerous temperature— too high or too low—gets recorded, the GPS will sound an alarm and the system sends a message to Delta’s call center so their team can respond appropriately.
