Porter Airlines

Porter Airlines is a regional carrier with a transnational vision. Currently serving 19 regional destinations in Eastern Canada and the North-Eastern United States, Porter has plans to expand its flight network further across North America.

At this time, Porter will permit small dogs and cats for in-cabin transportation only. Because they operate smaller aircraft, they limit the number of pet carriers to one per passenger, with a total of two carriers in the cabin at any given time. They strongly suggest that you contact them ahead of time to ensure that your pet will be able to travel with you.

They also would like to remind passengers that a pet carrier will count as the one standard article of carry-on baggage that you are permitted to bring aboard the aircraft.

  • Travelers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with any provincial or territorial restrictions when travelling in Canada and the United States.
  • Pets must travel with an adult passenger.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

Due mainly to operational requirements and limitations, Porter does not accept animals in the cargo compartments of any of their aircraft and does not offer any shipping options for animals. Anyone unable to travel with their pet should consider other options.

Connecting Flights

It is strongly recommended that passengers review the pet policies of any connecting flight with another airline.
