You may have seen a traveler bring a puppy or cat into the cabin of a Hawaiian Airlines plane or bring a larger dog as checked baggage. However, if you meet certain conditions, do you know that there are several US airlines that allow you to bring your pet bird on your flight?

What kind of bird can fly with you on an airplane?

Each airline specifies which birds can be used as hand baggage or checked baggage.

Normally your bird should be a domestic bird, a pet, in other words, not a wild bird – it should be tasteless and silent. For example, Hawaiian Airlines stated that your bird should be tasteless and does not require any attention during the flight. Most airlines that accept pet birds do not allow chickens or other poultry, only birds such as parakeets.

If your pet (bird, cat or dog) is particularly loud, please call your airline to find out if your bird is suitable for cabin travel.

Can you bring your pet into the cabin?

Some airlines like Hawaiian Airlines allow pets in the cabin, and can be placed under the seat in front of you. Others only accept pet birds as checked baggage. You must pay a fee, typically US $ 75 to US $ 125, to carry your bird with you on domestic flights.

At Hawaiian Airlines, the cost of transporting a pet can range from $ 60 to $ 225. Isolation, date and destination, weight and temperature restrictions apply.

Your airline may have restricted dates for the travel of pets. Usually these dates include Thanksgiving weekend and the year-end travel season. Contact your carrier for more information.

If you have to travel at a certain time of year when the temperature can rise above or drop below these benchmarks, you should be prepared to change your travel plans at the last minute or to fly without your pet.

The biggest restriction you might encounter is cross border travel. Some countries do not accept animals shipped from certain countries. Island countries, states and provinces in particular are trying to prevent animal-borne illnesses and often impose a series of requirements on travelers who wish to transport pets on airplanes.
