Used to be small ships from Miami to MGA on a regular basis. Containers and such/cars. Bernuth Lines. Been a while so do not know. I think you could make a deal but you or some other person have to go with.

I shipped big dog to MIA airfreight. Need cage for each one. I was nervous but they handled it really good. Dog was fine. Amerifreight. Office at the airport. Very helpful. Getting to Houston? They may have flights. You can ask. Just make sure whatever flight it is is direct..our don't want a connection

Or when passenger flights start up you can do on that United/AA and Delta all do it in cargo hold. They cannot take the biggest cage, so do needs to be less than really big.

Need vet certificate and rabies cert. within a week and needs to be an APHIS certified vet. A couple in MGA.

Good. Let me say I was very nervous about the airfreight. I checked to make sure there were no stops on the way. Plane left at 10 PM and I stayed with doggie on the loading dock until they were loading and then watched plane take off...to make sure plane got off. Her cage was last on and first off. Good luck. If you can get on passenger flight less nerve racking as you are on the same plane.
