Four of the Best Airlines for Pet Travel

Traveling with your pet can be a daunting experience. From researching the best airlines for pet travel to making sure your pet is safe and comfortable, it’s important to do your research to make sure you’ve chosen the best airline for your pet’s needs. To help make your decision a little easier Fuzzy Fur Babies Flight Nanny, not only provides accompanying services for precious pets but also has compiled a list of four of the best airlines for pet travel. Read on to learn more!

Cat in carrier

Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines is the most pet-friendly airline in the US. With their Fur-st Class Care™ program, this airline allows cats and dogs to fly in the cabin with fees starting at only $100. They also provide international traveling options for pet owners!

Pet taxi under airline seat

Southwest Airlines

Southwest Airlines is another great option for pet travel, allowing pets to only fly in the cabin, not the cargo. Pets must be eight weeks of age or older and be small enough to fit in a carrier that fits under the seat in front of you. Each passenger is allowed to bring one carrier with up to two pets of the same species.

Guinea pig in carrier

Frontier Airlines

In addition to having some of the best flight rates, Frontier Airlines is also a pet-friendly airline! This airline allows domesticated dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, or small household birds on board. Like with Southwest, only small pets are allowed as they are in-cabin only, not cargo.

Military member with dog

American Airlines

With American Airlines, one kennel can be taken as a carry-on bag if the carry-on pet fee is paid and the pet remains in the kennel and underneath the seat in front of the owner during the flight. If your pet is too big to fly in the cabin, it can travel with American Airlines Cargo, provided the pet and carrier meet the cargo kennel guidelines (which are applicable for active-duty U.S. Military and U.S. State Department Foreign Service personnel traveling on official orders).
