Aer Lingus Pet Policy
Passengers who plan on traveling with pets should contact Aer Lingus before making a reservation. Call the Aer Lingus Customer Service Team directly at (800) 474-7424 to make arrangements.
Aer Lingus does not accept pets in the cabin on any of their flights. Instead, pets can be checked as cargo with a freight forwarder like Pet Air UK.
For pets being transported as cargo from North America, carriers should have dimensions 27" x 20" x 19" (68 x 50 x 48 cm). Before making your reservation, call (800) 474-7424 to find further information about Aer Lingus carrier guidelines and specific freight forwarders who can help with handling your pet's travel plans.
Unfortunately, Aer Lingus does not accept the following breeds of dogs and cats: Akita American, Pit Bull, American Staffordshire Terrier, Argentino, Fila Brazillero, Mastiff, Pit Bull Terrier, Tosa, Rottweiler, all Bulldogs, Pugs, Boxers, and Persian/Exotic Cats.
Keep in mind that air carriers can change these policies at any time, so you should always check directly with the airline you are traveling on, before you book, for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
