These Are the Most Pet-Friendly Airlines in 2022
To help pet parents breathe a little easier about future trips, Airport Parking Reservations compiled a report of the most pet-friendly airlines, analyzing factors like costs of pet transport and the range of pets allowed onboard.
First place goes to Turkish Airlines, which received a 7.13 pet travel score out of 10. The company allows dogs, cats, ferrets, and small singing birds onboard for the reasonable price range of $8.15 to $24.26. But there’s a catch: Pets that can’t fit into a 23 x 30 x 40 pet carrier have to travel in cargo.
In second place is the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways, which received a pet travel score of 5.87. Although only one pet per passenger is allowed on All Nippon flights, a whopping nine species are allowed on board. The airline also has a massive international network that extends to major countries like the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and Korea.
Third place goes to Spirit Airlines, which received a pet travel score of 5.63. You can bring cats, dogs, rabbits, and birds with you for $125 per pet. A bonus: You can bring up to two pets per passenger, as long as there’s room on your flight.
