  • Air Transat will not allow pets in the cabin of any of their aircraft. They will accept cats and dogs only as checked baggage in the cargo hold.
  • For international flights, it is strongly recommended that travelers contact the consulate, embassy, or government authority of the country (or countries) they will be visiting to ensure that they have met all entrance requirements.
  • Because they travel to many international destinations all International Air Transport Association (IATA) rules and regulations must be followed for all products being shipped or transported.
  • Certain countries do not accept, or will restrict the entrance of live animals on international flights. Please check with carrier ahead of time.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

As noted above, Air Transat will not accept animals for transportation in the cabin of the aircraft. They offer cargo service for live animal transport and follow all standards set by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), as well as the Live Animal Regulations (LAR) book. For international travel, it is recommended that you call ahead to ensure that your pet can travel with you, as some countries have very strict policies surrounding which animal they can and will accept.

Codeshare flights

Air Transat cautions travelers that some departing or returning flights may be operated by carriers other than Air Transat. If this is the case, travelers are encouraged to consult the carrier they are travelling with in order to meet their specific rules and regulations.
