Pets in Checked Baggage

Additionally, 2 dogs or cats may travel in the same carrier if they weigh less than 31 lbs each. Each family is only permitted to travel with 2 pet carriers. The fee for animals weighing under 70 lbs (31 kg) is $78.75; and the fee for animals who exceed this weight is $157.50.

Pets in Cargo

Carrier Guidelines

For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers must not exceed the dimensions of 19" x 13" x 10" (48 cm x 33 cm x 25 cm). They can be soft-sided to allow easy transport underneath the seat. For pets traveling as checked baggage or cargo, carriers must be hard-sided with proper ventilation. They must be secure, in good condition, leak-proof, and contain absorbent material. The carrier must be large enough to allow Fido to stand up, turn around, and lie down comfortably inside. You must remove the wheels of the carrier before transport.

Other Restrictions

Animals must be at least 8 weeks old to travel with Calm Air. Pregnant animals are not permitted to travel. Reptiles (including snakes and lizards) and animals such as rats, mice, ferrets, and weasels are not permitted for travel in the cabin.
