Delta Airlines accepts pet for travel on first come first serve basis. Due to capacity limitation, the airline allows only 2 pets each in the First and Business Class, and 4 pets in the main cabin. 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

Small animals such as dogs, cats and household birds at least 15 weeks old are allowed to travel in the cabin.


With respect to cabin travel, Delta Airlines allows a passenger to bring one pet in each carrier. If a female dog or cat is flying across the domestic borders in the USA, then her litter, age 10 weeks or 6 months, can travel in the same carrier as their mother. There is no limitation on the number of animals comprising a litter. With respect to the carrier in which the pet will be placed, it can either be hard-sided or soft sided and must not exceed the dimensions limit of 21 x 15 x 16 inches.


Animals that cannot fit in the cabin, given their large size, or required to be transported without their owner, are shipped through Delta Cargo. A health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian is required to process the request of a pet being shipped as cargo. The carrier dimensions as laid down by the airline are 27 x 20 x 19 inches, 32 x 22 x 23 inches, 36 x 24 x 26 inches, 40 x 27 x 30 inches and 48 x 32 x 35 inches and any one can be chosen basis the comfort of the pet.
