Transporting Animals on Breeze Airways Aircraft: Requirements and Points to Remember
When traveling with your pet, it is important to keep in mind that pets must remain inside their carrier while on board the aircraft.
Pets are not allowed out of their cages during the flight and will not be allowed access to any of the passenger cabins. Additionally, Breezy Airways requires all pets to have up-to-date vaccinations (against rabies) and health certificates before travelling.
It is important to note that Breezy Airways reserves the right to refuse carriage to any animal that appears sick, aggressive or in distress. If you have any questions regarding our pet policy, please contact us directly for more information.
Add your pet to your flight booking
When making an online reservation, select the “Add Pet” option. This will ask you to enter your pet’s information, including size and breed. Once this is complete, you will be asked to pay a pet transportation fee of $70 per pet each way.
Once these steps are completed, your pet will be added to your reservation and you can validate it.
If you ever forgot to add your furry friend to your flight, you can do so from your My Trips account, provided that your flight check-in has not yet been confirmed and validated.
– By contacting the Breeze Airways call center
When you book a flight with Breezy Airways by phone, you can add a pet to your booking.
By calling 501.273.3931, a customer service representative will answer your call, and help you add your pet to your reservation.
The dog or cat must be put in an appropriate cage, the size of which must be adapted to the size and needs of the animal; it is better to buy a container a little earlier to get your pet used to it and reduce its stress level during the flight; the cage should also contain the pet’s favorite toy and water, possibly a snack.
– Cage size, suitable for dog/cat
According to IATA standards, the animal transport container must measure 18″x13″x9″.
– Maximum weight
The combined weight of the pet and its cage must be less than or equal to 40 pounds in order to be accepted in the cabin (where the weight of the animal must not exceed 25 pounds).
Tips for taking a hassle-free flight with your pet
Aside from the requirements that must be met and respected to be able to transport your pet in the cabin on a Breeze Airways flight, here are some aspects to consider in order to ensure their well-being throughout the journey:
Provide good ventilation for the dog inside its crate and protect its surface by using absorbents or waterproof bases while ensuring that it does not give off bad odors that could annoy passengers.
If you belong to a race considered potentially dangerous, wear the muzzle during travel, even if you are traveling inside your carrier, to avoid damage to the structures of the carrier due to stress or excessive nervousness.
You must bring your animal’s vaccination record and, in the event of an international flight, its passport. Ask your veterinarian how to apply.
It is necessary that you go to your veterinarian a few days before the flight to carry out an examination of your dog, and establish a health certificate guaranteeing that his condition is optimal, that he is dewormed, that he has an electronic chip, and that the vaccination card is up to date, including that of rabies, which is essential to access certain destinations. This aspect is very important, because to travel, the airline will ask you for your health certificate and your vaccination record, as well as your passport if you are traveling outside the United States.
Avoid feeding your dog on the day of travel to avoid vomiting if he feels dizzy, and since administering sedatives or tranquilizers is not strongly recommended if you are traveling by plane, he may advise you of other options to minimize your potential stress.
Traveling with a guide dog in the cabin
Guide or assistance dogs can travel with their master, on a leash, with a muzzle and at no additional cost, provided they have their passport, up-to-date veterinary card, electronic chip and ID. Be more than twelve weeks (three months) on the day of the flight. They are usually assigned a seat at the front of the plane, so they can board and disembark without inconveniencing other passengers. If this is your case, inform the chosen airline beforehand, so that it takes this into account and proceeds accordingly.
