Traveling with Pets

Flying with your pet can be challenging but fun. Southwest Airlines makes it easy for you to travel with your cat and dog. Pets are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached - which is six pets per flight. So, before you start getting your pet ready to travel with you, make sure you make a reservation in advance. On the day of travel, make sure to bring your pet to the airport in an approved pet carrier.

LUV to Travel

Here at Southwest, we like to do things a bit differently than "the other guys". We pride ourselves on making it both simple and fun to fly wherever it is that life takes you. With that in mind, Southwest Airlines wants to enhance the Customer Experience for pet-LUVing travelers, too! We welcome small, vaccinated domestic cats and dogs in an appropriate pet carrier in the aircraft cabin. We require a $75 Pet Fare per pet carrier each way and accept payment at the ticket counter. Southwest's pet policy states that we will accept up to five (5) pet carriers per scheduled flight. However, from time to time, circumstances may allow for more than five pet carriers on a flight.
