LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — A new airline for furry, four-legged creatures is coming to Maryland.

Starting Tuesday, Pet Airways will offer flights out of Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport for dogs and cats.

Along with BWI, Pet Airways also will have service at New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Denver airports. The airline plans to expand to 25 other cities over the next two years.

Animals will travel in pet carriers in the main cabin of the planes, not in the cargo hold as with most airlines. Pet Airways spokeswoman Alyse Pognotti says owners aren’t allowed on board.

One-way flights out of BWI start at $149.
