In case, pets weight more than 20 lbs (9kg), they will be transported in the cargo hold (More info)

Most airlines accept pets weighing 20 lbs or less in the cabin and no more than 100 lbs in the cargo hold. Larger dogs that do not meet the requirement of the cabin will be transported in the cargo hold. Before booking your flights with a pet, it is always advised to check any seasonal restrictions the airline may have.

Copa Airlines Pet Policy

Copa Airlines only accepts a limited number of pet(s) due to space restriction. Therefore, a passenger planning to travel with a pet must make bookings well in advance. It is of prime importance to be aware of the airlines’ specific pet policies to understand the requirements and prepare for a safe and comfortable journey for your pet(s).

Pet Criteria

Copa Airlines only welcomes dogs and cats as pet passengers.


Each passenger is allowed to bring only one pet in the cabin of the aircraft provided that the weight of the carrier and the pet does not exceed 20 lbs. Also, the age of the pet must not be less than 8 weeks. The airline suggests that the pet should either be kept inside a soft sided carrier or a hard sided carrier. While the dimensions of the soft sided carrier must not measure more than 13 x 17 x 7.5 inches, a hard sided carrier must be within the dimension restriction of 11 x 18 x 11 inches.


Pets that do not meet the stated requirement of the cabin are transported via the cargo service of the airline. The age restriction for pets traveling in the cargo is between 2 years and 11 years. Throughout the flight’s duration, the pet must be kept inside a carrier that should be large enough for him/her to stand up, turn around and sit comfortably. The dimensions of the carrier for that purpose should either be within 16 x 15 x 21 or 27 x 30 x 40 inches.

Emotional Support/Service Animal

Each passenger is allowed to bring one emotional support or service dog in the cabin of the aircraft. However, Copa Airlines require that the passenger must present them with the necessary documentations.

  • In case of a service dog, it must be identified as trained and have a proof of vaccination and certificate of good health
  • In case of an emotional support dog, a letter issued by a medical practitioner stating that the dependent passenger diagnosed with mental disability as recognized in the DSM-IV or V is in need of the animal.
