Aerolineas Argentinas Airlines Pet Policy
Traveling with pets on Aerolineas Argentinas is a seamless process, designed with the comfort of your furry friends in mind. The airline allows small dogs and cats to accompany you in the passenger cabin on domestic flights within Argentina, provided the combined weight of the pet and its carrier does not exceed 20 lbs (9 kg). The fees for this service range from $25 for short domestic flights to $295 for select international routes. To ensure a smooth journey, it is essential to reserve a spot for your pet via Aerolineas Argentinas' WhatsApp line (54 9 11 4940 4798) at least 72 hours prior to your flight's departure.
If your pet is larger, or exceeds the weight limitation for in-cabin travel, it can be transported as checked baggage instead. However, keep in mind that availability for this service may depend on the specific conditions and type of aircraft being used for your flight. Additionally, only one pet is permitted per carrier. The fees for transporting pets as checked baggage start at $330 and vary depending on your destination and the weight of your pet.
It's crucial to have the correct carrier for your pet.

These carriers must be resistant, have a waterproof base, sufficient ventilation, and ample space for your pet to move comfortably. Pets traveling as checked baggage must be in carriers of specific sizes depending on your pet, with the largest permissible size being 39" x 31" x 27" (100 cm x 80 cm x 70 cm).
However, Aerolineas Argentinas has certain breed-specific restrictions for pets traveling in the hold.
