Restricted Breed

Understanding restricted breeds on certain airlines is difficult for most pet owners as a pet parent of a Pit Bull or Mastiff-type dog, for example, knows their pet is super sweet & well behaved but are told their breed is “restricted” from the airline. Breeds are selected for the restricted breed list not because of any fear of the breed itself, but reported cases of a particular breed have a particularly strong jaw set and therefore being more likely to  break out of an airline crate during the trip. These special boxes are for the safety of the pet and the aircraft.

Snub Nose Breeds (brachial cephalic breeds)

Most American airlines (Delta, United, American, Alaskan, Hawaiian) no longer accept snub nosed breeds, including pitbulls, staffies and American bullies for carriage.

Age Restrictions

Most airlines will not take pets under 10 weeks of age for transport. Even if an airline will accept a younger pet it is crucial for the pet that you wait until 10 – 11 weeks at the earliest. Dogs and cats go through a fear impact period at 8-10 weeks and anything they perceive as traumatic can affect their personality the remainder of their lives.

Temperature Restrictions

Most American based airlines have temperature restrictions of 85 degrees for longer muzzled breeds. This restriction is in place for those airlines that take the pets to the plane with the baggage and are not transported separately and loaded more quickly into the aircraft. The aircraft loading area can be many degrees higher especially if later in the day than the actual temperature and the restriction is for the safety of the pet. Some airlines have temperature controlled vehicles on the ground or take the pets out separately from the luggage, and as a result have different or no temperature restrictions. Some airlines vary these restrictions by city or breed.
