On Alaska Airlines, pets are accepted in the aircraft cabin and in the baggage and cargo compartments. Pets allowed in the passenger cabin are dogs, cats, rabbits, and household birds. Brachycephalic or “short-nosed” dogs and cats are not accepted for travel in the cargo compartment on Alaska Airlines flights (including flights operated by Horizon, SkyWest, Ravn Alaska, or PenAir), but may still travel in the cabin. Alaska Airlines accepts most small domesticated pets in the baggage and cargo compartments. Other pets may be accepted with approval. Pets that may travel in the climate-controlled baggage and cargo compartments include cats, dogs, ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters, household birds, non-poisonous reptiles, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits, and tropical fish. All pets traveling in the cargo compartment on Alaska Airlines (including flights operated by Horizon, SkyWest, Ravn Alaska, and PenAir) are required to have a health certificate dated within 10 days of outbound travel. Alaska Airlines accepts only cats or dogs for travel to and from Hawaii. Because of Hawaii’s unique status as the only rabies-free state, there are additional requirements for travel. Only dogs and cats will be accepted when traveling to the United States from a non-US location, and for travel to Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica.
