Tips for Air Traveling With Your Pet

Puppy If you must transport your pet by air, your first decision is whether you can take him or her on board with you, which is by far the best option. If your pet is a cat or small dog, most airlines will allow you to take the animal on board for an additional fee. To find out about this option, call the airline. Most airlines provide information about transporting pets with them.

When you contact the airline, find answers to these questions:

Does the airline allow you to take your pet on board with you?

  • If that option isn't available to you, does the airline have any restrictions on transporting your pet as cargo?
  • Does the airline have any special pet health and immunization requirements?
  • Does the airline require a specific type of carrier? Most airlines will accept either hard-sided carriers or soft-sided carriers, which may be more comfortable for your pet, but only certain brands of soft-sided carriers are acceptable to certain airlines.
