The Hawaiian Airlines pet policy is as follows:
Effective Jan. 11, 2021, Hawaiian Airlines will no longer accept emotional support animals as service animals, in line with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s updated regulations (14 CFR Part 382). Emotional support animals may be transported as pets, if all pet acceptance requirements are met.
HA accepts certain animals for transport in the cabin of the aircraft, as checked baggage and in cargo.
Small domesticated dogs and cats are accepted in the cabin only on inter-island flights and flights leaving the State of Hawaii.
Pets are not allowed on flights arriving into the State of Hawaii due to quarantine requirements.
Household birds will not be accepted for carriage in the cabin, but may be accepted as checked baggage.
Pets are not accepted in the cabin on flights arriving into the State of Hawaii due to Quarantine requirements.
Due to floor space limitations, pets traveling in cabin will not be accepted in the First Class cabin on all North America flights; on flights to/from New York or Boston; on flights into the State of Hawaii; or on International routes (including Pago Pago).
Pets are prohibited as checked baggage on all international routes.
Due to respiratory difficulties an animal may experience while in transit and in Hawaii’s tropical climate, it is highly discouraged and not recommended that brachycephalic (short-nosed) animals travel as checked baggage.
During yearly embargo periods (April 15th – October 15th), HA is unable to accept animals as checked baggage under any circumstances. Embargo cities are as follows: San Jose, CA (SJC); Sacramento, CA (SMF); Las Vegas, NV (LAS); and Phoenix, AZ (PHX).
Pet and kennel combined weight must not exceed 70 lbs. If the combined weight is in excess of 70 lbs. HA may transport your animal via the Cargo department.
Taking a pet to a foreign country involves preparation and planning far in advance of your departure date. Requirements for pet travel to a foreign country are set by the destination country. If you are you traveling to another country and bringing along your pet you’ll need to meet the animal health requirements of the country you are visiting.
