Allegiant Air

Allegiant Air focused their efforts on linking smaller (and notably under-served) American cities with a variety of popular destination spots. As a result, they have introduced a unique and very successful business model to the highly competitive world of discount air travel providers. They feature affordable fares, direct flights, and friendly service to destinations across the lower 48 States and to Hawaii.

Allegiant offers in-cabin travel for domestic cats and dogs only. At present, there are no options for transporting live animals as checked baggage or as live cargo. For in-cabin transport, an FAA-approved carrier is recommended. They also remind travelers that pet carriers are included in carry-on baggage allowance.

CARRIER SIZE Maximum dimensions:
  • Length: 48 cm (19 in)
  • Width: 41 cm (16 in)
  • Height: 23 cm (9 in)

Allegiant will not accept pets as checked baggage at this time.

  • Domestic cats and dogs are the only pets accepted aboard Allegiant Air flights. Some restrictions apply when flying to Hawaii. Please consult them before travelling.
  • For international flights, it is strongly recommended that travelers contact the consulate, embassy, or government authorities for any country (or countries) they will be visiting to ensure that they have met all entrance requirements. Travelers are advised to familiarize themselves with any regional laws or restrictions that may apply.
  • In-cabin pet travel is limited. Passengers with pets should call ahead.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

Allegiant does not offer options for pets to travel either as checked baggage or as cargo freight. If your pet will be travelling unaccompanied you will need to make arrangements with another airline.

Codeshare flights

Because Allegiant flies mostly nonstop direct flights, they do not list any official codeshare partners. However, it is strongly recommended that travelers contact any connecting airlines directly to familiarize themselves with their individual policies regarding pet travel.
