Dave Stangle, VP of Brand Marketing for BARK, joined ABC7 on Thursday to talk more about the expansion.

Stangle spoke about the idea behind the creation of the airline, the amenities they offer and what the expansion means for their four-legged and two-legged passengers.

BARK Air embarked on its maiden voyage in May, when it offered trips from New York to Los Angeles. It was quite popular last month already, with 15,000 requests for new destinations.

The CEO says that everything is designed for the dogs so that they have a stress-free journey.

It will cost you $6,000 for a domestic flight and $8,000 for an international flight for a dog and a human.
