Transport your animal in the hold of the plane

Delta Air Lines believes your pets should go where you are going.

For small dogs, cats and pets, it is possible to keep them on your flight as long as you go through security.

You will be able to transport approximately 2 kennels per excursion and some limitations may apply. Some giant kennels must be shipped as freight with another expert supplier, due to space conditions.
