Pets traveling in the cabin require a reservation to ensure no more than seven pets are booked on any single flight. To ensure your pet is accommodated, please make arrangements in advance by contacting Reservations.
Checked pets do not need a reservation.
Attention dog show participants: Capacity is limited therefore checked pets are accepted on a first-come basis.
Being prepared will help reduce stress for you and your pet. Please remember:
