If you plan on flying with your dog this summer, please note
that, due to potentially high temperatures on the ground at some airports, Air
Canada and Jazz are not able to transport pets as checked baggage from June 20 to September 10, 2011.
However, Air Canada Cargo is specially equipped for the
transportation of animals during the summer months and will accept pets
during this period with
the exception of select cities. Importantly, at any time when the
temperature is over 29.5 °C, Air Canada Cargo may not be able to accommodate
animals. For further assistance, please call 1 (866) 615-1155 or contact your local Air Canada
accepts pets as checked baggage during the summer, with the exception
of select locations. WestJet
Cargo planes are temperature controlled and can transport pets during the
warmer months on domestic flights only. For more information, please call WestJet at
1 (800) 581-9499 or WestJet Cargo at 1 (866) 952-2746
As a reminder, we encourage all CKC members to review the requirements
for shipping dogs within Canada and to the U.S. in advance of any shipment.
