Carrier measurements will vary depending on the aircraft serving the route.

There is one pet permitted per passenger unless you are carrying a mother cat or dog with her unweaned litter. Two pets of the same size and species (generally puppies, kittens or toy dogs) may be allowed in one pet carrier, provided there is adequate room in the carrier for them to stand up and turn around.  

Age: Pets must be at least 10 weeks old.

Check-In: You will check in at the passenger counter as animals are not checked in at curbside. A fee will be collected at the time of check in. Your pet airline carrier will count as a piece of carry-on luggage.

Delta Airlines Pet Policy

If your pet is too large to fit under the seat, it is an animal other than a dog or cat, or if it is a very long flight, Delta may transport your pet in the cargo section of the aircraft according to its regulations. This section of the cargo department has the same temperature and pressure as the passenger cabin.

Pets Allowed: Cats, dogs, household birds*, guinea pigs*, rabbits*, hamsters* and marmots*. *Domestic flights only.

Reservations: Must be made 48 hours in advance. Maximum of 2 pets per flight.

Cost: $200USD

Check-In: When flying as checked baggage, you will check in your pet at the passenger ticket counter in an IATA compliant pet crate at which time you will pay the fee for transport. In order to travel as checked baggage, the weight of your pet and its carrier should not exceed 75 pounds otherwise your pet will travel via Delta Cargo. More than one pet is permitted to travel in one crate if it is a mother with an unweaned litter or 2 pets weighing less than 20 pounds each and are between 10 weeks and 6 months of age.

Temperature Restrictions: Delta will not transport pets as checked baggage between the period of May 15 through September 15. During that time, pets must fly under the policies of Delta Cargo unless the weather is extreme. If, at any point,(origination/transit/destination) during your pet's transport, the temperature for the day is forecast to be less than 10°F (-12°C) or greater than 85°F (29°C), your pet will be refused transport as checked baggage. There are no exceptions to these temperature restrictions.

The airlines counts on you to check for the arrival time for cargo. They do not have the manpower to do otherwise. They have set their website up for that.

Jessica if you don't mind my asking what happened with this? I have a 7-month-old that is also 20 lbs and crate trained like your dog. Can you give me some advice on which airline to choose and the process of traveling with my dog? Thank you so much!

I need specific information re: traveling with a service dog from Fort Walton Beach, FL to Louisville, KY. Our first time flying - well, his first time.
Posted on 2013-08-06 18:43:06.0
You need to contact Delta as they need to see certification in advance. Delta will require your service dog to sit at your feet (unless it is small and can fit in a carrier under the seat in front of you.) and not block the aisle. You may want to reserve a window seat. I am sure you have told them you are flying with a service animal when you made your reservations. If you have not yet made reservations, be sure and do so. Here are some tips on traveling with a pet:

Hello, I need to know. I travel with a small cat she is 4 months old and she weighs 4.5 lb. Who knows she needs slip from the vet? I fly from Portland to Philadelphia.

Hi; I need to send my Bloodhound-mix, from San Francisco, To Montevideo between September 16 and Sep. 20, 2013. Rocky, my dear doggie is 150 pounds. He would need a #800 Vary Kennel…. to be ok... 48" L x 32" W x 35" H. I'm going there also so I'm flexible about dates and ways of flying, with him or I can have some waiting in Montevideo…. Please, (I'm desperate at this time about this ordeal); could you tell me if this will be possible and how much it could cost? Thank you and I appreciate any help on this most urgent matter….

I'm also waiting for a response from LAN Cargo… (monday…) Will be a very loooong weekend...
Posted on 2013-08-17 02:13:18.0
Lan is your best bet from what I can see. American flies this route, but don't think they will take an 800 series crate. Taca and Copa both have long layovers on their routes. Be sure and ask Lan if their aircraft can handle your crate. Sorry I could not be of more assistance.

Will Delta accept a 170 pound lab to fly from International Falls to Fort Myers Fl, as cargo when we are on the same flight?
Posted on 2013-08-22 14:02:07.0
I'm traveling with a pet from Helsinki to Detroit to NW Regional on Oct. 3rd. I have a crate with dims of 122 x 81 x 89 cm, total weight below 75kg. Are there restriction that would prevent my pet flying with me as luggage?
Posted on 2013-09-20 10:08:16.0
I suspect that your pet is too large to travel as checked baggage. Usually, the cut off is around 34kg so the baggage handlers can lift the crate.
Posted on 2013-09-28 18:09:28.0
Is there any new policy stating that an animal coming in from overseas with another airline will have to obtain a new health certificate (even though the initial one to enter the country is still valid) at the location where the pet has landed. A pet shipping company is telling me Delta is now requiring this and wants to charge an extra $100. Have you ever heard of anything like this before?
Posted on 2013-09-28 21:10:51.0
They did this to us at Munich Airport, it was a Delta flight, it was much more than $100 because we arrived on a Saturday and they literally called the vet in to work and we had to pay his fee.
Posted on 2013-09-28 21:44:36.0
Possibly related - pets were shipped as cargo under the delta pets first program.
Posted on 2013-09-28 21:45:59.0
Michael Martin , it's retarded though, if the health certificate used to get into the country (and it's good enough for that) then why would another health certificate be necessary for a flight between GA and FL? It just sounds like a way for the pet shipping company to make more money. They want to take the pet from the airport, to the vet, then back to the airport for the connecting flight. Just does not make sense.

two years ago, i travelled with my dog ( rottweiller) with delta and i recommended it to everyone but, now i choose delta again a they told me that rottweiler is a dangerous breed and its not allowed ..... its ridiculous rottweiler and doberman is not dangerous breed !!!

We would like to fly a macaw from St. Thomas to Miami to be met by a macaw rescue group. does the bird need vet statements, or a person to fly with it?
Posted on 2013-10-13 22:01:18.0
I have a health certificate for my dog, obtained to take her into Canada. We had it made 9/17/13. Is this sufficient for my in cabin flight booked with Delta for 11/6/13 to FL from Maine.
Posted on 2013-10-26 13:27:01.0
Technically, health certificates should be issued within 10 days of travel. Delta does not publish a requirement for a health certificate for in-cabin travel on domestic flights. You can call them to confirm.
Posted on 2013-10-27 22:35:34.0
Birds entering the US from St Thomas are to be quarantined for 30 days at the USDA Animal Import Center on arrival. MIA is one of the few locations that birds can enter the US. You will need an Import Permit and a Veterinary Health Certifications. Lots of information on importing birds to the US here:

Hi, I am travelling from the uk to the us one way only.and want to carry my pug as an emotional supprot dog, i have a letter from my doctor confirming will delta accept a pug in the cabin going out to the u.s as an emtional support dog??thanks
Posted on 2013-11-17 19:22:24.0
Delta does have an emotional support program. You will have to provide documentation to them ahead of travel to qualify. More details here:

I have a Boston Terrier that is about 26" long and 19" tall and weighs about 20 pds. I know he cannot fly as checked baggage because of his breed. Is he to big to fly in the cabin?
Posted on 2013-11-19 22:41:27.0
If you are flying internationally, the airlines generally check the weight of your pet and its carrier together. The airlines all have different weight requirements. Twenty pounds is a bit on the high side, considering also the weight of the carrier. Also, you must find a carrier that will fit your pet and fit under the seat in front of you. Twenty six inches exceeds the length of any carrier that we have in our store. Delta may not transport your pet as checked baggage, but it will do so as manifest cargo. Your pet will travel in the hold and should be on the same plane as you. Contact Delta Cargo for details. Hope this helps.

Hi, I booked a flight from mnl to bwi thru delta. I told them I have a dog with me. They told me its only 13x10X10. Actually it's change everytime I check with there customer services. What if my dog exceed to allowed size. Like 3inches. She is a shih tzu. ? Will she allowed to Board?? If not Is there any option? I need my dog badly.
Posted on 2013-11-27 09:56:33.0
That sounds a little small, but it may depend on the aircraft Delta uses to service the route. You do need to find a carrier that will allow your dog to stand up and turn around. If your dog is too small for the carrier, the reservation agent may not allow you to board.
Posted on 2013-11-29 19:07:43.0
Hi, he is a little big actually. He is 19 inches in lenght. Will a customized kennel bag will be okay?? As long as its a collapsible? What is the other option to transport pet to US. He is can't be in check in as well because of his breed. Can you suggest me something???thank you
Posted on 2013-11-29 22:47:23.0
Christin Andaya My only other suggestion would be to fly him as manifest cargo. It will be more expensive but your pet can still be on the same flight as you are.
Posted on 2013-12-03 03:09:31.0
Hola Kenneth !! We came with our 2 dogs, a Min Pin and an English Pointer. We used LAN Airline and they were the best !!!!

I can't seem to find any information about shipping snakes. I found other reptiles and exotic animals but it doesn't say yes or no to allowing a large snake to be shipped and if so what the requirements are.
Posted on 2013-12-06 16:50:57.0
As long as your snake is not venemous, most airlines will accept it as cargo. Find the best airline for your route and contact their cargo department.

i would like to know what papers i need to travel with my large dog and if i don't have a dog carrier does the airline rent them out?
Posted on 2013-12-11 23:02:12.0
The documents you will need depend on where you are going from and to and how your pet is traveling. If your pet is traveling as checked baggage, most US based airlines do not require a health certificate, but some do and it is still a good idea to travel with one. If your pet is too large to travel as checked baggage and is traveling as manifest cargo, you will need a health certificate issued by your vet within 10 days of travel. If you are traveling internationally, you will need documents required by the country you are traveling to. You can contact your carrier and ask whether they rent crates, but most do not.
Posted on 2013-12-12 23:57:46.0
I would like to take my dog to flint Mi, he has tob go cargo can we leave and arrive n on the same flight?
Posted on 2013-12-30 02:50:44.0
Yes, you and your pup will travel on the same flight even though your pet is traveling in the cargo hold. If you are accompanying your pet, it should be able to travel as checked baggage unless it is very large or your airline does not offer that service. Be sure and ask airline personnel at the gate for confirmation that your pet has been loaded and inform the Captain or crew that there is a live animal in the hold and to monitor the conditions throughout the flight.
Posted on 2014-01-01 23:45:02.0
Delta should accept your Rottie as manifest cargo. It will travel in the cargo hold, same as checked baggage, except you would be dealing with Delta Cargo in that case and the pick up and drop off locations would be different.

Pedro - your pup would have to be fully vaccinated and arrive as cargo. Most puppies are vaccinated for rabies around 3 months. Your pup can enter Brazil at the age of 4 months according to Brazil's regulations.
Posted on 2014-01-06 02:30:57.0
Hi Mamy - I do not know where you are flying from, but I will say that 15 lbs is on the high side for international travel. Most airlines require a maximum weight of carrier and pet at 11 pounds. Does she have a suitable carrier that she can travel in that will fit under the seat and that she can stand up and turn around in?
Posted on 2014-01-06 02:37:36.0
I am not sure who charged you $100 to clear your pet. Where was your puppy traveling from? Did an agent clear it for you? Are you expecting another puppy? Sorry, but I need a few more details. Thanks.

Hi tnx for the we dont have one going to the delta airlines in the airport to ask questions...i hope they will allow her in the cabin...she will freak out in the cargo area..
Posted on 2014-01-06 02:47:24.0
Thanks PetTravel! I'm pretty sure he could be vaccinated. But arrive as cargo? You mean I cannot have him as a carry on inside the airplane? Delta Airlines just told me that today.... Thanks again for the attention!
Posted on 2014-01-09 09:46:42.0
Pedro Iaco Pedro - it is our understanding that Brazil requires all live animals to arrive as cargo. Please confirm with Delta and let us know if they tell you differently.

Posted on 2014-01-17 03:26:55.0
Kahu Kahealani Kawaiolamanaloa Satchitananda Correction: it is the policy of the airlines, not the Brazilian Government. The airlines should permit emotional and support animals to travel in the cabin as long as their policiies permit it.

Hello: I am flying with my cocker spaniels of 24lb. Her pet carrier is 20"L x 16"H x 12"W. That size could fly in delta in-cabin?
Posted on 2014-01-20 16:32:02.0
Your pet must be able to stand up and turn around in the carrier comfortably. The head should be fairly erect when standing. The reservations agent may not allow you to board if the carrier is too small.

Posted on 2014-01-25 18:34:17.0
Joanne - sorry for the late response; your question was hidden to us. There are airlines that will permit your pup to travel in the cabin out of the UK. Try American, Iberia or KLM as they all have direct flights from LHR to MIA.

Posted on 2014-02-19 04:54:01.0
Delta should permit your Boxer to travel unaccompanied under their cargo department as long as the temperatures are not extreme. Contact their cargo department and make sure they don't fly 767 aircraft on this route as those planes do not accommodate pets.

Posted on 2014-02-23 19:23:54.0
James - you need to notify Delta that you are flying with a pet as checked baggage. You will pay for your pet's transport at the check-in counter. You will have to call Delta and ask them if they rent crates and whether they guarantee they will have one for you on flight day.

I am flying my 11.3lbs hairless Chinese crested/ dachshund mix. I am already booked with her as my carry on dog on my flight from RSW (Fort Myers, FL) to STL (St. Louis, MO) . There is about a 2 hour layover in Atlanta before the connecting flight. She told me for both flights combined the carrier I buy needs to be 13 L x 15 W x 10 H . They already know she is 11.3lbs. She loves to curl into a ball when comfortable and actually enjoys tights spaces even at home (The Chinese Crested breed is known for this) I'd be happy to tell them all this info as far as can she stand up and move around...she probably would rather be in a tight space as far as she is concerned! My problem is a fly out on March 26th. I have looked in stores and have searched online and having great difficulty in finding these dimensions. I am only 21 years old and this little one has to come with me because i will be there a while. the dog is 51/2 yrs so she won't grow. I need help where to purchase this. I will even expedite the shipping if I knew where to look. help please? :)
Posted on 2014-03-09 01:36:38.0
Lauren - Delta is giving you a guideline here. The object is to get the carrier under the seat in front of you. All of the carriers listed here are airline compliant: There is even one that Delta put its name on that is made by Sherpa. We can get it to you quickly.
Posted on 2014-03-10 04:56:17.0
David - if your carrier is soft sided, then the airlines should be a bit flexible about their recommended sizing. The object here is to get the carrier under the seat in front of you. Height is normally the issue, but if you are traveling with a soft sided carrier, then you should be able to compress it to get it under the seat. Reserve a window seat. There is more room and you won't have to struggle with electronics.

Posted on 2014-04-20 23:04:04.0
Hi Brianna - you will not take the cats to the gate if they are traveling as Delta cargo. You will take them to the cargo facility. Warehouse 8965 Tradeport Drive Building #401 Orlando, FL 32827 They should all be in IATA compliant cargo crates.
Posted on 2014-04-24 03:38:10.0
Hi Laurie - if your cat is flying unaccompanied, you will need to contact Delta Cargo for the cost.

Hi Kenyatta - your pet will need to fit into an airline compliant carrier. Not sure if Delta flies pets out of Hawaii in the cabin. You may want also to check with United. You will need to measure her. Here are some examples and at the bottom of the product page, there are details on measurements.

State regulations for domestic cats and dogs only refer to requirements for rabies vaccinations.

My husband and I are immigrating from South Korea to the US (For me back home). We have two dogs coming with us. How could we get a hold of your approved crates in South Korea?

@kenyatta I called Delta and they said as long as your pet's carrier fits under the seat of EACH plane you take, meets health requirements, weight dog+carrier up to 20lbs, can stand and turn around in carrier, your pet can be in cabin from Hawaii. I fly out of Hawaii in June and two planes have 11 inch height under the plane and one has 9 inches height so I am using the Delta medium sherpa carrier for my mini schnauzer, it is 10.5 inches tall and holds up to 16lbs. It costs $125 and the dog will be considered your carryon but you still can have a personal item like a purse or back pack. Hope this helps!

Jessica - you can ask Delta if they will sell or rent you the crates or you can build your own. Make sure they conform to the Delta's regulations. You can find more information here:

Try Korean Air or Asiana Air. They both fly this route and avoid Narita, Japan. (difficult to transit)

Victoria - contact the cargo department if your dog is traveling unaccompanied. Send an email to if you need help.

Hello. I have a puppy coming from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania going to Manila, Philippines, can you advise me on the shortest route possible? I already used Delta in 2012 when transporting 2 puppies from New York. Also, can I book and pay for the shipping here in the Philippines? Thanks.

Delta has the shortest route we could find from Harrisburg through Detroit straight to Manila; however, make sure they don't fly a 767 on the flight as these planes do not accommodate animals. It would certainly be easier on everyone if you could fly the puppies out of Harrisburg.

So any Delta international plane except for a 767? Also, can I book and pay here in Manila? Thanks for your prompt reply.

Not sure about the booking. Normally it is handled by the person dropping off the pet. Confirm with Delta Cargo.

hi , i want to sent my dog from israel to the us(nevada or california) i'm now in the states and my fog is in israel :-(, is there delta cargo service in that route ?

Delta does offer international cargo service, but on this particular route, you will need to verify with them that they are not flying 767 aircraft. Those planes are not configured properly to fly live animals in the cargo hold. If this is the case, you can try El Al as they have direct flights between Tel Aviv and Los Angeles.

14.5 hrs flight , isn't it too much for the dog ? To do it in direct flight ?
