You must inform Cape Air that you are flying with an animal when you book your ticket on board. You can do this by calling a Customer Service Representative at 800-CAPE-AIR.
Pets in the Cabin
Animals traveling in the cabin are approved on a first-come, first-served basis. Multiple live animals from the same family are permitted on the same aircraft, however, there may not be enough room on every flight. Additionally, multiple live animals from different families are not permitted on the same aircraft. For travel between Hyannis, New Bedford, Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, dogs may be transported with or without a kennel, but they must not exceed 35 lbs (16 kg). During the flight, they may be carried on the passenger’s lap. Pups that exceed 35 lbs (16 kg) must be properly restrained with a leash or harness, usually behind the last row of seats. The maximum weight for animals is 80 lbs (36 kg). The fee for transporting Fido in the cabin is $10 per animal, each way. TravelPass and commuter book holders are allowed to travel with their animal for free.
For pets traveling in the Cessna 402 Aircraft, carriers must not exceed 28" x 20.5" x 20.5" (71 cm x 52 cm x 52 cm). For pets traveling in the ATR42 Aircraft, carriers must not exceed 40" x 27" x 30" (101 cm x 68 cm x 76 cm).
Bringing Fido on board a Cape Air flight relies on airport authorities and is subject to change with or without notice. When passengers are transporting cats, they must always be inside a carrier. Upon arrival, health certificates may be required by local authorities, depending upon the route over which the pet is traveling. Pets must be accompanied by a traveling passenger. Connections with other carriers are not available. Additional seasonal or route-specific restrictions may apply depending upon the aircraft size and flight specifics.
