Flying with your dog this summer? Then here are some dog-specific travel options to keep in mind:
We are pleased to report that WestJet accepts pets as checked baggage during the summer, with the exception of select locations from May 1 to October 31. WestJet Cargo planes are temperature controlled and can transport pets during the warmer months on domestic flights only. For more information, including details about shipping dogs, please call WestJet at 1 (800) 581-9499 or WestJet Cargo at 1 (866) 952-2746.
Due to potentially high temperatures on the ground, Air Canada and Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz are not able to transport pets as checked baggage from June 20 to September 10, 2014.
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 details, including information on shipping dogs, please call 1 (866) 615-1155 or contact your local Air Canada Cargo office.
As always, we encourage CKC members to review country-specific regulations re: restrictions on the entry of animals and vaccination and documentation requirements, prior to booking.
