InterJet: Pet Policy

What methods of transport does Interjet provide for my pet?

  • Checked as baggage in pressurized and temperature controlled area of your aircraft.
  • Transported as carry-on baggage.

Does my pet qualify for travel in the passenger cabin?

Minature dogs and cats are allowed to travel in the cabin accompanied by their owner. The pet must travel in an approved carrier that must fit under the seat ahead. The pet must also be deemed as non-threatening. Only two pets are allowed in the cabin on each Interjet flight.

Does my pet qualify for travel as checked baggage?

Pets that meet the following qualifications can travel as checked baggage:

  • Only domesticated dogs, cats, and roosters/chickens are allowed.
  • The kennel meets all requirements (see below for more information).
  • Your pet has all necessary health documents required by your destination (see below for more information).

What are the fees associated with pet transport?

Fees vary depending on flight route. Contact Interjet for more information.

What are the kennel requirements?

Below are some of Interjet's kennel requirements:

  • Be leak-proof and escape-proof.
  • Be properly ventilated, but not allow any part of the animal from protruding outside of the container.
  • Provide enough room for the animal to stand and turn around.
  • Be made of metal, wood, or a hard plastic/composite.
  • Be closed securely, but not locked.

What health documentation is required?

For domestic flights, you will have to show a certificate of good health, anti rabies, and vaccination issued no more than a week before the trip. For international flights, many countries require further health documents. As it is the passenger's responsibility to be aware of all regulations, you should consult your veterinarian and the local embassy to where you'll be traveling to ensure that your animal will comply with all requirements.

Are there any other restrictions?

Interjet can refuse to transport an animal due to illness, aggressive behavior, poor kenneling, or extreme temperatures at origin, transfer, or destination airports.
