Since 2011, strict security regulations have been put in place by both airlines and federal authorities to ensure that only "known and/or registered shippers" can book the transportation of a deceased person with commercial carriers. This has made airline booking difficult for many funeral providers.
MacKinnon and Bowes offers an online reservation request option to reserve a flight for a shipment of a human remains. This allows you to submit ship-out details on-line at your convenience. We will make all of the flight arrangements that you have requested and send you a confirmation of the flight itinerary via fax or e-mail.
As a "registered and known shipper" MacKinnon & Bowes enables you to make all necessary flight arrangements domestically and internationally to serve your client families. In-line ramp transfers and connections are also easily arranged through the world wide network of MacKinnon & Bowes affiliates.
Requests submitted outside of our published hours will be confirmed the next business day.
To make a request for an airline reservation, please complete the form below and click the “SUBMIT” button.
