United AirlinesCarry-On Pet Policy:

Dogs, cats and household birds (canaries, finches and parakeets) are accepted for travel in the cabin on most United Airlines flights. Tropical birds such as parrots are not allowed in the cabin. No pets are allowed in the cabin on flights to Hawaii, with the exception of certified guide dogs. Pets traveling in the cabin must be at least eight weeks old and must be small enough to fit and stay comfortably in a carrier under the seat in front of you. The fee for pets traveling in the cabin is $125 per pet (each way for flights within the U.S., U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada and Puerto Rico). International rates vary. Passengers traveling with pets must check in at the airline ticket counter. Curbside or self-service check-in is not available. Please allow extra time for the check-in process when traveling with pets.

Checked Bagage/Cargo Policy:

Dogs, cats, household birds, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs may be accepted as checked baggage on United Airlines flights. For all other animals, including but not limited to parrots, cockatiels and ferrets, please contact United Cargo at 1-800-UA-CARGO or visit unitedcargo.com. Pets accepted as checked baggage can ride in the pressurized and heated cargo compartment of the aircraft you are ticketed on. The fee is $250 (each way). These are domestic rates; international fees may vary. Please note that United Airlines does not accept certain short-nosed dog breeds in cargo during the summer months of each year (June 1 through September 30) due to extreme temperatures that may exist in the cargo area of planes. Also, United Airlines reserves the right to restrict all pet travel in cargo when extreme temperatures are anticipated. Please visit United Airlines’ website for more information. When checking pets into cargo, arrive at the airport early. However, please note that you cannot check in your pet more than four hours before the flight (six hours by special arrangement).

Carrier Guidelines:

For pets traveling in the cabin, pet carriers may be either hard- or soft-sided and must prevent escape of your pet into the cabin. No part of the animal should protrude from the carrier, and the floor must be absorbent enough to retain liquids and solids. Ventilation must be adequate. Dimensions of hard carriers may not exceed 17″ long x 12″ wide x 8″ high; soft carriers should not exceed 17″ long x 10″ wide x 10″ high. Note that a pet carrier counts as either a passenger’s carry-on bag or personal item. For pets traveling in cargo, pets must be kept in approved containers. The carrier must be sturdy, properly ventilated, and large enough for your pet to stand, lie down, and turn around freely. The carrier must close securely with a mechanism that requires no special tools to operate. For more information on approved carriers, please visit United Airlines’ website.

Pet Reservations:

Whether your pet is traveling in the cabin with you or in cargo as checked baggage, it is important to contact United Airlines by telephone to reserve tickets for yourself and your pet. Call for reservations at 1-800-UNITED-1 (1-800-864-8331) and let the agent know that you are traveling with your pet. If you are traveling with puppies or kittens (at least eight weeks but no more than two months old) or small domestic birds, United Airlines permits up to two animals per approved carrier. Contact the airline directly for more information.
