Porter Airlines Pet Policy

Porter Airlines understands that pets are an important part of many people's lives and they strive to make traveling with pets as convenient and comfortable as possible. Here is everything you need to know about Porter Airlines' pet policy.

Porter Airlines allows passengers to travel with small dogs and cats in the cabin. The maximum weight allowed for the pet and carrier combined is 20 pounds (9 kg). Only one pet is allowed per passenger, and the pet must be able to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably in the carrier.

To ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers, there are a few guidelines that must be followed when traveling with a pet on Porter Airlines. The pet carrier must be leak-proof and well-ventilated, with a secure latch. Soft-sided carriers are recommended for their flexibility and ability to fit under the seat in front of you. The carrier must remain closed and secured during the entire flight.

Guidance, Tips, & info on Airlines and Airports

Pets must remain inside their carriers at all times, and they are not allowed to be taken out during the flight. The carrier must be stowed under the seat in front of you for the duration of the flight. It is important to note that pets are not allowed in the cabin on flights to and from the United States due to government regulations.

Porter Airlines does not allow pets to travel in the cargo hold. This means that if your pet does not meet the requirements to travel in the cabin, they will not be able to travel with you on Porter Airlines flights.

It is also important to note that each passenger is responsible for ensuring that they have all the necessary documentation for their pet to travel. This may include health certificates, vaccination records, and any other required paperwork. It is recommended to check with the appropriate authorities and veterinarians to ensure that all requirements are met before traveling.

Keep in mind that air carriers can change these policies at any time, so you should always check directly with Porter Airlines before you book for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
