Traveling With Pets

Can I bring my pet on-board flights to Hawaii?

Allegiant does not accept live animals/pets on flights to or from Hawaii.

Can I bring my pet on-board?

Yes, Allegiant accepts live animals/pets (domestic cats and dogs only) in the passenger cabin of the aircraft on flights within the contiguous 48 United States.

Pets in cabin must be in an FAA approved kennel or carrier that fits under the seat which will allow a maximum size of 9 in. x 16 in. x 19 in.

Soft-sided carriers are strongly recommended since pets must be comfortable while remaining in the carrier, under the seat, at all times.

Pets need to be able to stand and turn inside the carrier, so the CSA/GOA will determine if there is adequate room in the carrier for any pet(s).

A kennel or carrier is included in the carry-on baggage limitations.

There is a $100 fee per one–way flight for each carrier in the cabin, with no more than two (2) pets per carrier.

This fee must be paid at the time of booking the reservation. To book a reservation with a pet, please contact the Allegiant Reservation Center and use option 1 and tell the agent you are booking with a pet.

Customers traveling with pet carriers may not be seated in exit rows, one row before or after an exit row or in the bulkhead seats for safety reasons since the carrier must fit under the seat. There can only be one (1) pet carrier per side, for a maximum of two (2) pet carriers per row.

Can I bring my qualified service dog on-board flights to Hawaii?

There are strict requirements regarding the entry of service animals into Hawaii.

Customers planning to travel to Hawaii with a service dog should view the Hawaii Department of Agriculture Web site and plan accordingly.

Can my child who is at least 15 years old, traveling alone bring a pet on-board?


I am unable to check in online and have been instructed to check in at the airport.

Online check-in is available starting 24 hours before scheduled flight departure.
Most passengers should be able to check in online, however some passengers will not be able to print a boarding  pass and will be instructed to check in at the airport ticket counter.
The reason for this is usually so that we can best accommodate special service requests on a passenger itinerary (such as a pet in cabin, wheelchair, or special need) or to better seat families together.
Remember, even if you check in online, we recommend all passengers arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before scheduled flight departure.
Checked baggage must be brought to the airline ticket counter at least one hour before departure.
Please plan to be completely checked in, through airport security, and in the departure boarding gate area one hour before departure time.

Is there a fee to bring a pet in the cabin?

There is a fee of $100 each way to travel with a pet (domestic cats and dogs only) in the cabin in an FAA-approved soft-side carrier.
A fee does not apply to service animals of passengers with disabilities.
