Flying With Pets

Airline Pet Policies

Flying with pets can be challenging. The first thing you need to do when flying with your dog, cat or other pet is to find airlines that serve your origination and destination airports and check their pet policies. Many airlines will accept your dog or cat, but each airline will differ in the services they offer. Will the airline allow your dog or cat to fly in the cabin with you? What are the restrictions? Will your pet need to travel in the airline cargo hold? Find answers to all your questions below when you click the down arrow next to the GO button and find cat and dog airline pet policies for over 160 airlines!
Another option for pet travel is by private charter. Although this is more expensive than commercial airlines, pets will fly in the cabin with their owners in luxury, regardless of their size.

Airline Pet Policy

There are basically 3 ways that pets can travel in a commercial airplane: in-cabin, checked baggage and manifest cargo. When traveling in the cabin, pets must fly with an adult passenger and fit in an airline compliant carrier for pets which will be stowed under the seat in front of the passenger. If your pet is accompanied by a traveling passenger and is too big to travel in the cabin or is an animal other than a cat or dog (in most cases), it can be transported as checked baggage if your airline offers this service. Lastly, if your pet is very large or is traveling unaccompanied or your destination country requires it, it will travel as manifest cargo. Your pet will travel in the cargo hold of the airline when flying both as checked baggage or manifest cargo. Below is more helpful information on flying with pets.
