Pet Reservations

Only 1 pet is allowed in the cabin and 1 pet in the hold on each Widerøe flight. When you book online, make sure you add a comment that you are bringing your pet with you. Widerøe Customer Service will check the availability on your flight and confirm by e-mail if they have space. Your ticket will not be issued until space for the pet is approved. If you book the flight less than 72 hours before your departure, Fido's spot on board isn't guaranteed.

Pets in the Cabin

Small dogs and cats can travel in the cabin if the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). Passengers are only allowed to bring 1 pet in a carrier in the cabin on each flight. Fido must stay in their carrier under the seat in front of you for the duration of the journey. The fee for this service is 400 NOK in advance; and 425 NOK at the airport.

Pets in Checked Baggage

Animals who exceed the dimensions to travel in the cabin may be accepted for transport as checked baggage in the cargo hold instead. 2 animals up to 30 lbs (14 kg) each, and of the same size, are allowed in the same carrier if they are used to each other. Additionally, animals under 6 months old can travel in groups of 3 in the same carrier. The fee for this service is 500 NOK in advance; and 550 NOK at the airport.

Pets in Cargo

Pets who need to be transported separately/or to the UK can travel with SAS Cargo. You can contact them directly via telephone at (+44) 208-759-4999, or via email at for more information.

Carrier Guidelines

For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers must not exceed the dimensions of 16" L x 10" W x 9" H (40 cm x 25 cm x 23 cm). Widerøe recommends that passengers use a soft Sherpa Bag in the cabin. If you're using a hard top carrier in the cabin, dimensions cannot exceed 16" L x 10" W x 8" H (40 cm x 25 cm x 20 cm). For pets traveling in the hold, carriers can be between the smallest size of 21" L x 16" W x 15" H (53 cm x 41 cm x 38 cm) and the largest size of 40" L x 27" W x 30" H (102 cm x 69 cm x 76 cm). Carriers must be waterproof with an absorbent mat on the bottom. They mustn't be made of steel and wire mesh. Additionally, they must allow pets to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably inside. On flights WF610-619 between Bergen and Bodø/Tromsø, carriers must not exceed the dimensions of 28" L x 20" W x 21" H (71 cm x 52 cm x 55 cm) due to restricted space in the cargo hold.
