Icelandair Pet Policy
Icelandair welcomes pets to travel with their owners, but it's important to familiarize yourself with their pet policy before booking your flight. 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.
If you plan to travel with your pet on Icelandair, here's what you need to know:
Pet Reservation Info: A maximum of 4 animals can be carried on each aircraft, so you should call their Customer Service Team at (800) 223-5500 to guarantee Fido a spot on board. However, 2 animals can share a carrier if both are small and of the same species. Remember, mandatory quarantine of pets upon entry occurs in many countries and that it is the responsibility of the passenger to determine the requirements of the country being entered.
Pets in Passenger Cabin: Unfortunately, animals are not accepted in the cabin on Icelandair flights.
Pets as Checked Baggage: Animals can travel in the special climate-controlled transport area of the cargo hold if the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 88 lbs (40 kg). Passengers must provide their own carrier for Fido. The fees for this service are split into 3 different zones: Zone 1 is within Europe and is $126; Zone 2 is between Iceland and North America and is $148; and Zone 3 is between Europe and North America and is $174.
Allowed Weights & Dimensions: For pets traveling in the hold, carriers must not exceed the dimensions of 36" L x 25" W x 28" H (91 cm x 63 cm x 71 cm). The carrier must be IATA-approved.
Restrictions & Limitations: The following dog breeds are not accepted on Icelandair flights due to breathing issues: Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Tso Ino, and Dogo Argentino. One emotional support dog is welcome per passenger.
