Caribbean Airlines

Caribbean Airlines was incorporated in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in 2006. In 2011 they acquired Air Jamaica, making them the largest carrier in the Caribbean. They currently offer flights throughout the Caribbean, to select cities in North America and South America, and offer a dedicated route to London's Gatwick Airport.

Caribbean Airlines will not accept animals of any kind in the passenger cabins of their aircraft. They will allow certified service dogs to travel in-cabin with proper documentation, but only with prior approval and only on approved routes. They also do not specify whether or not they will accept animals as checked baggage. They do, however, have a Live Animal transport program that can accommodate almost any type of animal travelling as manifest cargo. Shipping of live animals should be arranged through Caribbean Airlines Cargo.

Restrictions

  • Travelers are reminded that every country has different rules and regulations governing the acceptance and transportation of animals. It is strongly recommended that you contact the consulate, embassy, or government authority for any country (or countries) you will be visiting to ensure that you have met all entrance requirements.
  • Caribbean Airlines will not accept primates used for laboratory research, experimentation, and exploitation purposes.
  • Caribbean Airlines will not accept animals in the cabin of the aircraft or in the hold as checked baggage. All animal transport should be made through Caribbean Airlines Cargo, and may be accepted as manifest cargo freight.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

Given Caribbean Airlines policies of not accepting animals for travel either in the cabin or as checked baggage, manifest cargo may be your only option. Please contact Caribbean Airlines Cargo to discuss what options may be available to you.

Codeshare flights

Pets may not be accepted on flights operated by codeshare partners. It is strongly recommended that you contact any codeshare partners, or other airlines you may be travelling with, to familiarize yourself with their individual policies regarding pet travel.
