Dogs are allowed for $100 each way (includes connections in the $100) for travel in the cabin for small dogs or in cargo for larger dogs. You must provide the crates or carriers. You should, if possible, book 24 hours or more before your flight. Travel to Hawaii is allowed, but see the link here for Hawaii Import Issues.

Booking Pet Travel

Reservations for pets are accepted before 24 hours prior to departure (subject to space availability) for all animals traveling.

Space for pets traveling in the cabin or in the cargo compartment is limited and subject to availability. For air travel on Alaska Airlines, Pen Air and Era Aviation, please contact Alaska Airlines Reservations at 1-800-ALASKAAIR (1-800-252-7522) .

If your travel plans include travel on another airline, please contact the airline directly to reserve space, determine fees and obtain additional information about traveling with your pet on the other airline. Please note that Alaska Airlines does not transfer pets traveling in the baggage compartment to other carriers. Pets must be claimed and rechecked to the connecting carrier.

Pet Embargoes

Customers traveling on Alaska Airlines flights 2000-2999 or flights 3450-3499 may not check pets in the baggage or cargo compartments during the following dates:

November 25, 2013 through December 3, 2013
December 13, 2013 through January 3, 2014

Pets in Cabin will still be accepted during these time periods.

Alaska Airlines accepts only cats or dogs for travel to and from Hawaii. Because of Hawaii's unique status as the only rabies-free state, and because of strong headwinds at certain times of year, there are additional requirements for travel. Please visit our Pets Traveling to Hawaii page for further details.

Health and Vaccination Requirements

Health and vaccination requirements vary by state and country. It is recommended to contact the State Veterinarian at your destination prior to travel to determine necessary documentation (such as health and cold weather acclimation certificates) and vaccination requirements.

Alaska Airlines is not responsible for any costs incurred should customers not have the required health documentation to enter the state or country.

Customers traveling to Kotzebue with a dog must have proof of their pet's Parvovirus and rabies vaccination. Customers checking in without required documentation will be denied boarding. Contact the Kotzebue City Clerk (907-442-3401) for assistance or questions.

Customers traveling to Nome with a dog must have proof of their pet's Parvovirus vaccination. Customers checking in without required documentation will be denied boarding. Contact the Nome City Clerk (907-443-6663) for assistance or questions.

Only pets in good health are permitted. Any pet in a kennel too small or in obvious distress due to illness or injury will be refused travel.
