Yes, domesticated dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters or small household birds may be carried on flights within the United States for a one-way directional charge. Only domesticated dogs and cats may be carried to or from international destinations. For safety reasons, your pet must stay in their travel container at all times. We do not allow pets to be checked as baggage.
A few things to know about your pet’s traveling container:
- The travel container must be large enough for the pet to stand, turn around and lie down in a natural position. The carrier must also fit underneath the seat in front of you. There may be certain seats that cannot accommodate your pet container, but we'll work with you to get a seat assignment with space.
- Maximum dimensions for a pet container are 18" length x 14" width x 8" height.
- In addition to the travel container for your pet, you are allowed either a personal item OR a carry-on bag. An additional fee will apply for the carry-on bag.
