Delta Airlines

Delta Airlines allows small dogs and cats to travel in the cabin with their owners, as well as larger pets as checked baggage or cargo. Here are some key points from their pet policy:

  • Checked baggage and cargo policy: Delta Airlines allows larger pets to travel as checked baggage or cargo. There are specific requirements for the carrier and the health certificate that you need to follow, and there is a fee for this service.
  • Breed restrictions: Delta Airlines does not allow certain breeds of dogs to travel as checked baggage or cargo due to their breathing issues, including bulldogs, pugs, and Persian cats.

It’s important to note that Delta Airlines’ pet policy can change, so it’s always best to check their website for the most up-to-date information and requirements.
