Best Airlines for Pets to Travel Safely

1. American Airlines

This airline is your best bet when choosing to bring your cat or small dog as a carry-on due to their pet carrier dimension allowance.

Alaska Airlines is one of the best choices for traveling pets based on safety data. They also reportedly fly more pets than any other domestic airline, which makes this data even more impressive.

3. JetBlue Airways

JetBlue is a favorite airline among people, and they're also a top pick when flying with pets for the same reason: excess leg room!

4. Frontier Airlines

Frontier Airlines allows several species of pets to travel in the cabin: cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, and small birds.

5. Delta Airlines

With Delta Airlines, you can fly your cat, small dog, or household bird in the cabin with you. They allow pets to reside in a roomy 18- by 11- by 11-inches soft carrier.
