Air Travel with Pets - Pet Airline Travel Regulations

If an airline does allow you to bring your pet into the cabin, then the your pet carrier/container will be considered carry-on baggage and you must follow all standard carry on baggage rules:

  • your pet container must be small enough to fit underneath the seat without blocking any person's path to the main aisle of the airplane.
  • your pet container must be stowed properly before the last passenger entry door to the airplane is closed in order for the airplane to leave the gate.
  • your pet container must remain properly stowed the entire time the airplane is moving on the airport surface, and for take off and landing.
  • you must follow flight attendant instructions regarding the proper stowage of your pet container.
