WestJetCarry-On Pet Policy:

WestJet permits domestic cats, dogs, rabbits and birds to travel in the passenger cabin for a fee of $50 each way. Pets are not permitted to travel to Hawaii on WestJet flights due to quarantine restrictions. Passengers are limited to traveling with one pet whose maximum weight (including carrier) is 22 pounds (10 kg). Most pets (cats and dogs) on most transborder flights will need a health certificate from their veterinarian as well as proof of rabies vaccine in the last year. It is the owner’s responsibility to obtain this certificate prior to traveling. Please ensure that you check in a minimum of two hours prior to your flight time. If traveling to or from the United States, WestJet cannot accept your pet for check-in more than two hours prior to the scheduled departure of your flight.

Checked Bagage/Cargo Policy:

For pets too large to travel in the main passenger cabin, WestJet allows them to travel as checked baggage for a fee of $50 each way. Pets allowed to fly in this manner are cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, chinchillas, guinea pigs and hedgehogs. The maximum combined weight of your pet and the carrier is 100 pounds (45 kg). During certain times of the year, because of the potential for extreme temperatures in the cargo area of planes, pet travel as checked baggage is not available. It is recommended that you contact WestJet for further information about this policy if you intend to transport your pets in cargo during periods of potentially dangerous temperatures. Also, pet travel in check baggage is not available from December 15th through January 6th each year.

Carrier Guidelines:

When traveling in the passenger cabin, pets must be contained in a soft-sided carrier with maximum dimensions of 16″ long x 17.5″ wide x 8.5″ high (40 cm x 44 cm x 21.5 cm). Your pet must be fully enclosed in the carrier at all times when onboard the aircraft. The carrier must remain under the seat in front of you during the entire flight. Pets traveling as checked baggage must be contained in a hard-sided kennel designed for air travel. Your pet must be able to stand up and turn around inside the carrier, and the carrier must be leak-proff and lined with absorbent materials. Kennels must be well-ventilated and secure. Kennels made of wire or welded mesh or with a plastic door are not permitted. The maximum carrier size is 36″ long x 24″ wide x 26″ high (91 cm x 61 cm x 66 cm).

Pet Reservations:

Because space for pets in the cabin and in the cargo areas is limited, it is recommended that you contact WestJet to reserve a ticket for yourself and your pet as soon as possible after confirming your travel plans. Simply contact WestJet at 1-888-937-8538 and tell the agent that you are traveling with your pet.
