Delta becomes the first in the industry to introduce a new best-in-class travel experience for pets and their owners with the exclusive launch of CarePod.

This new pet travel carrier marks a new standard for pet air travel by including state-of-the-art features like real-time updates during the flight.

The CarePod’s other safety features include:

Industrial strength, insulated walls to protect pets from potential temperature fluctuations when moving between different climates and travel conditions.

Multi-layered window and doors with specially angled blinds to block out visual stress from unfamiliar environments.

A built-in hydration system that can hold up to a liter of water that will automatically refill the carrier’s spill-proof water bowl.

A GPS tracking and monitoring system that connects a pet’s journey directly to the specialized Delta Cargo Control Center that will send out the proper staff on the ground to check on the pet if needed.

The ability to view the pet’s travel updates from a mobile phone via deltacargo.com.

A CarePod pet travel carrier can be booked three to thirteen days prior to departure. The CarePod can be booked by visiting deltacargo.com or by calling Delta’s Cargo Customer Service Center at 1-800-352-2746.

The CarePod will initially be offered in U.S. locations: Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York (JFK and LaGuardia), San Francisco and West Palm Beach. Eventually, the goal is to introduce the CarePod across Delta’s U.S. network.

TSA Bans TikTok Videos From Agency Social Media Accounts

Published

on

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced Sunday employees would no longer be permitted to use TikTok to post on behalf of the agency’s social media accounts.

According to the New York Post, the decision to ban the use of the Chinese owned video-sharing app comes after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voiced concerns about potential national security issues.

TSA officials said several employees who managed the agency’s social media accounts had used the TikTok platform to create videos that were shared with followers, but the agency has told its staff they are no longer allowed to use the video-sharing app on TSA accounts.

While the TSA never had a TikTok account or posted content directly to the platform, the federal agency’s employees posted videos on TSA social media accounts that featured the social media platform’s logo in the corner.

Senator Schumer began advocating for the agency to stop using TikTok after he called on intelligence officials to investigate the platform to protect national security. He followed up his comments with a letter to TSA Administrator David Pekoske on Saturday, which sparked the ban.

When asked about the decision, Schumer defended his position and cited a Department of Homeland Security rule prohibiting TikTok on agency devices. The Department of Defense and the State Department have also banned employees from posting on the social media platform.

“Given the widely reported threats, the already-in-place agency bans, and the existing concerns posed by TikTok, the feds cannot continue to allow the TSA’s use of the platform to fly,” Schumer said in a statement.

“These videos sure do make you chuckle; they’re creative,” the senator continued. “But China might be laughing at these TSA postings for very different reasons, and that should concern us and it’s why I am urging the TSA to find a different platform, and cease its use of TikTok now.”
