  • The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) allows each airline to decide if they will allow you to travel with your pet in the passenger cabin. If an airline does allow you to bring your pet into the cabin, we consider your pet container to be carry-on baggage. 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. If an airline allows you to travel with your pet in the cabin, you must follow all FAA regulations. Usually, most airlines have additional policies and procedures for you to follow to make sure that the flight is comfortable for all passengers on the airplane. These additional procedures may include A limited list of the types of pets that you can bring into the cabin A limit on the number of pets in the cabin A limit on the number of pets that may accompany you on the airplane A requirement that your pet be harmless, inoffensive and odorless A requirement that your pet remain in the container for the entire flight A requirement that you be able to produce a recently issued health certificate for your pet You can find out what the specific policies and procedures are for each airline in several ways. You can call the airlines’ reservations line and get information from the agent who takes your call. You can also look at an airline’s website to get information about their policies for traveling with pets. Some airlines do not allow any pets to travel in the cabin. You can use the information above to find out specific policies for each airline.
