Airline Requirements for a Pet Carrier - Travel Tips - USA Today
Most Celltei®pet carriers are designed for in cabin airline travel. Specifically, we have considered the following:
As in-cabin pet policy is not regulated by the FAA and is done so by each airline, it has been tricky for people traveling with their pets to get a clear answer as to whether or not an airline approved carrier would fit beneath the seat on a particular airline. As a result, we have partnered with a number of pet-friendly airlines to create Guaranteed On Board®. GOB allows pet parents to get an actual guarantee that their carrier will be allowed on board. Simply go to , select the airline and complete flight, pet and carrier info. If everything is in compliance, print the form and present it at check-in. If you’re refused entry due to their Sherpa® carrier, we will reimburse you for your ticket and their pet fee. Essentially, we’ve worked with the airlines to build an online form that encompasses all of their specific requirements so you and your pet can travel stress-free. Guaranteed On Board - fly with peace of mind.
When traveling with your pet it’s important to keep them comfortable and stress free, but it’s even more important to ensure that they are safe! Every pet carrier is airline and pet approved! Travel in style and safety together. Get 10% OFF your purchase by our pet travel club!

That limits you to a very small pet! In addition there can be only one pet traveling per person, and there is a limit of six pets on one plane. Not all airlines are this strict, but they all have their rules! Maximum measurements: 21.6" L x 15.7" W x 9" H (55 cm x 40 cm x 23 cm). You must notify the airlines that you are traveling with a pet. The combined weight of your pet and its carrier cannot exceed 17 pounds (8 kg). Reservations for your pet cannot be made online.
Service animals can travel with their owners in the cabin free of charge with advance notification. For carry-on pet containers, you’ll definitely want to make sure that your new carrier is actually approved by the airline you’re riding with. In most cases, there should be no issue, but just because a product is approved for air travel doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be able to take it on all airlines as regulations can vary quite a bit.
