WestJet Fee Update for Pets Travelling in Cabin and as Checked Baggage

As of December 3, 2018, WestJet has made changes to some of their fees for carrying pets in both the cabin and baggage compartment of the aircraft. Please refer to the chart below for details on pricing.
 
Fee Type Region Current Fee New Fee
Pet in Cabin Travel within/between Canada and the U.S. $50-$59 CAD $50-$59 CAD (no change
Pet in Cabin Travel between Canada and all destinations outside the U.S. $50-$59 CAD $100-$118 CAD
Pet in Hold Travel within/between Canada and the U.S. $75-$88 CAD $100-$118 CAD
Pet in Hold Travel between Canada and all destinations outside the U.S. $75-$88 CAD $200-$236 CAD


According to WestJet, these changes have been made to better align with industry standards and to offset WestJet’s higher costs in today’s challenging and competitive markets.  There has been no change to fees for pets travelling in the cabin between/within Canada and the U.S. and WestJet maintains that their fees remain lower than Canadian competitors’ for animals in hold.  
 
Seasonal Air Travel Restrictions
Also, a reminder that due to chilly temperatures and increased passenger and cargo loads expected over the holiday season, winter restrictions are in effect for the transportation of pets travelling by air.

Please note that WestJet holiday embargo dates apply to pets travelling as checked baggage. Therefore, WestJet is unable to accept animals as checked baggage from December 15, 2018 to January 6, 2019. From December 11 to December 14, 2018, and from January 7 to January 10, 2019, a maximum of two animals will be accepted as checked baggage. Also note that WestJet Cargo is unable to transport pets from December 15, 2018 to January 6, 2019.

Air Canada is unable to transport pets within North America as checked baggage or via Air Canada Cargo from December 15, 2018 to January 12, 2019. This restriction applies to flights within North America, or on international flights with a connection in North America during this time.

As many countries place restrictions on the entry of animals, be sure to contact the embassy or consulate of your destination country for specific requirements. Please visit aircanada.com or westjet.com for more details.
