Pet Reservations

Pets are not included as part of the baggage allowance and the number allowed on board is limited, so you should contact the SAS Customer Contact Center at (800) 221-2350, as soon as your travel plans are confirmed.

Pets in the Cabin

Animals are permitted to travel in the cabin with Scandinavian Airlines. Each passenger can bring 1 carrier on board holding a maximum of two small pets inside. This will count as your piece of carry-on luggage. The combined weight of the pet(s) and carrier can't exceed 18 lbs (8 kg) to be accepted on board. During the flight, the animal must remain under the seat in front of you. The fee for this service is $60 for a domestic Nordic flight; $80 for flights to Scandinavia, Europe, Tel Aviv, and Turkey; and $115 for flights to the US and Asia.

Pets in Checked Baggage

Animals that exceed the weight limit to travel in the cabin may be transported in the cargo hold. The maximum weight for animals being transported is 132 lbs (60 kg). Up to 2 animals weighing 31 lbs (14 kg) can be transported in the same carrier if they are used to each other. Animals over this limit should be transported in separate carriers. On Airbus 319, 320, and 321 flights of over 3 hours, the maximum weight of each animal is 66 lbs (30 kg). The fee for this service is $80 for a domestic Nordic flight; $105 for flights to Scandinavia, Europe, Tel Aviv, and Turkey; and $140 for flights to the US and Asia.

Carrier Guidelines

For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers must not exceed the dimensions 16" x 10" x 9" (40 cm x 25 cm x 23 cm). The carrier must be large enough for the animal to stand, lie down & turn naturally in. It must be either a Sherpa bag (small), or a soft-sided pet carrier. For pets traveling in the hold, carriers must be large enough so that the animal can stand up, turn, and lie naturally. They must be leak-proof, solid, tight, clean, and disinfected. The carrier must be made of fiberglass, metal (not welded or wire mesh), rigid plastic, solid wood or plywood with handles on the sides, and have a solid floor. The carrier must be equipped with containers for food and water, and the bottom of it should be covered with a layer of newspaper or sawdust (not hay or straw).

Other Restrictions

Animals are not accepted on flights operated by Privatair between Copenhagen–Boston. Pets can be transported in the U.S. and Canada with SAS Cargo. Service dogs, emotional support animals or other service animals, such as rescue dogs, travel for free in the cabin with SAS, when on active duty.
