Summer Restrictions for Pet Travellers

Thinking of flying with your dog this summer? Be sure to check with your airline carrier as there may be pet travel restrictions due to high temperatures and heavy loads during peak summer travel periods.

WestJet accepts pets as checked baggage during the summer, with the exception of select locations from May 15 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 1-888-937-8538 or WestJet Cargo at 1-866-952-2746.

Air Canada is not able to transport pets as checked baggage from June 20 to September 10, 2016. 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 higher than 29.5°C (85°F).

Just a reminder that Air Canada and Air Canada Cargo does not accept Brachycephalic breeds on any flights, due to an increased risk of heat stroke and breathing problems.
For further details, including information on shipping dogs, please call 1-800-387-4865 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.
