Airline Pet Policies
Planning to fly with your dog? While air travel can be a quick way to get Fido from one place to another, you should know that every airline has different rules about transporting pets. Some allow small dogs to travel in the aircraft cabin as part of your carry-on luggage allowance, while others will only allow pets to travel in the cargo area, and fees can vary from nothing at all to more than $500. Also, most airlines only allow one or two dogs on each flight, so always make sure a "seat" is available for your dog BEFORE buying your own ticket.
To take off without a hitch, please read our Ten Tips for Flying with Fido, and familiarize yourself with current U.S. Travel Regulations or International Pet Travel restrictions before your trip. Still have questions? You can also speak to frequent flyers in our Air Travel Forum. Have a great trip!
