Pets in the Cabin
Small dogs and cats can travel in the cabin on Interjet flights if the combined weight of your pet and carrier does not exceed 11 lbs (5 kg). Animals must be stowed under the seat in front of you for the duration of the flight and remain inside their carrier throughout. The fee for this service is $550 MXN on routes within Mexico, $30 USD on routes from/to Latin America or the United States, and $36 CAD on routes from/to Canada.
Pets in Checked Baggage
Cats and dogs can travel as checked baggage if they exceed the maximum weight limit to travel in the cabin. Although they don't have weight limits for pets traveling in this manner, animals who exceed 50 lbs (25 kg) are charged an additional fee for every 2 lbs (1 kg) thereafter. The fee for this service is $550 MXN on routes within Mexico, $30 on routes from/to Latin America or the United States, and $36 CAD on routes from/to Canada.
For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers should not exceed the dimensions of 15" H x 12" W x 9" D (40 cm x 30 cm x 22 cm). They must be soft on the outside so they can be safely stowed under the seat in front of you. For pets traveling as checked baggage, carriers must be large enough to comfortably carry your pet. The carrier must allow Fido to lie down, turn around, and stand up comfortably inside. Carriers must be secured with a padlock, contain a tag with information inside, flight numbers, and be sprayed with odor neutralizer. Inside the carrier, you should place a toy or a familiar item to make them feel at home. Ideally, you should allow your pet 4" (10 cm) of room between their head and the roof of the carrier.
