Air Canada Imposes Full Embargo on Brachycephalic Breeds

In a recent announcement, Air Canada advised that, effective July 21, 2015, the airline is unable to accept brachycephalic breeds for travel—as cargo or checked bagged—citing health and safety concerns. Brachycephalic breeds may travel in the cabin with passengers to destinations where allowed.  

The new embargo affects the following breeds:
 
American Staffordshire Terrier
Affenpinscher
Cane Corso
Bulldog (all breeds)
Boxer
Boston Terrier
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Dogue de Bordeaux
English Toy Spaniel
Lhasa Apso
Mastiff (all breeds)
Pekingese
Pug  
Shar-Pei
Shih Tzu
Tibetan Spaniel

Note: summer pet travel restrictions remain in effect:  Air Canada is not able to transport pets as checked baggage from June 20 to September 10, 2015. 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, Air Canada Cargo does not accept warm-blooded animals for transport when the outside ground temperature is 29.5°C or higher at any location in the routing.
