US AirwaysCarry-On Pet Policy:

US Airways permits passengers to bring one small domestic dog, cat or bird in the cabin on most flights for a $100 fee (each way). Carry-on pets are not allowed on transatlantic flights or flights to/from Barbados and Hawaii. Only dogs and cats are allowed to/from Mexico and Costa Rica. Call the airline directly at 1-800-428-4322 for additional requirements for international travel. Pets must be at least eight weeks old and be small enough to fit comfortably in a carrier under the seat in front of you. 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 your pet.

Checked Bagage/Cargo Policy:

US Airways’ hub cities of Phoenix and Las Vegas have extreme temperatures that regularly exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. For the safety of your pet, US Airways does not accept any animals in its cargo compartments. One exception is that the airline will accept dog, cats and birds as checked baggage on nonstop US Airways Shuttle flights between/among Boston (BOS), Washington D.C. (DCA) and New York (LGA). Connections are not permitted. The customer must travel on the same flight as their pet. Customers should contact US Airways in advance to arrange for pets to travel as checked baggage on US Airways shuttle flights.

Carrier Guidelines:

For pets traveling in the cabin, pet carriers may be either hard- or soft-sided and must be leak-proof and escape-proof. Carriers must be ventilated on at least two sides and must not allow any part of your pet to protrude outside of the container. Carriers must provide room for your pet to stand up and turn around. Dimensions of hard-sided carriers may not exceed 17″ long x 16″ wide x 8″ tall; soft-sided carriers should not exceed 17″ long X 16″ wide X 10″ tall. On US Airways Express flights, pet carriers must not be more than 15″ long x 17″ wide x 8″ tall on CRJ aircraft, more than 16″ long x 17″ wide x 8″ tall on DH3 aircraft or more than 15″ long x 14″ wide x 8″ tall on BH1 aircraft. Contact US Airways directly for carrier requirements for pets traveling as checked baggage on US Airways Shuttle flights.

Pet Reservations:

The number of pets that may be carried in each cabin is limited. Therefore, it is important that you contact US Airways as soon as possible after confirming your travel plans to reserve tickets for yourself and your pet. In order for your pet to travel with you, you must make your reservations on flights with cabin pet space available. Call 800-428-4322, and let the agent know that you are traveling with your pet.
