If you’re anything like me, then you dread seeing someone get on a plane with a cat or small dog. Personally, I have allergies to pets and the thought of spending hours trapped in a small space with one or more of them is not a pleasant one. No one wants to end up at their destination with allergy issues.

An airline will remove peanuts for a peanut allergy but do nothing for the people with pet allergies. In fact, it seems like more and more airlines are becoming pet friendly. If you want to avoid pet friendly airlines, here are the airlines I’ve found that do not allow pets in the cabin.

The list below is in alphabetical order so that you can easily search for an airline.

Pet-Free Airlines

Aer Lingus – only allows pets in the cargo hold

Aerolíneas Argentinas – only allows pets in the cargo hold

Air CanadaONLY flights to/from Hawaii have pet-free cabins

Virgin Atlantic – only allows pets in the cargo hold

Note: Service animals are generally exempt from pet-free cabin rules, so you may still find yourself on a flight with an animal in such an instance.

***Keep in mind that this info can change at any time and is current as of December 2012.***

Each airline has pet travel information on their website, which you can confirm prior to booking.

If you see any airlines that I’ve missed, please let me know!
