Most airlines accept pets weighing 20 lbs or less in the cabin and no more than 100 lbs in the cargo hold.

Before booking your flights with a pet, it is always advised to check any seasonal restrictions the airline may have.

Southwest Airlines Pet Policy

Southwest Airlines happily allows pets to travel accompanied in the cabin on their domestic flights. 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). Southwest Airlines has a capacity of up to 6 pets per flight, so confirming the availability is the first step of many, as explained further.

Pet Criteria

Only cats and dogs are accepted under Southwest’s pet travel policy.


Every passenger is permitted 1 pet carrier, inside which up to 2 pets of the same species can be accommodated. You can choose from either a soft sided or a hard sided carrier, not bigger than 18.5" x 8.5" x 13.5" (47 cm x 22 cm x 34 cm). It should also be ensured that the carrier is leak proof and well ventilated.
