At Skywest Airlines, we understand that pets are an important part of our passengers' families, and we are committed to providing a comfortable and safe travel experience for both our human and furry travelers. In this policy, we will provide information on the transportation of pets on Skywest Airlines flights.
Definition of a Pet
For the purposes of Skywest Airline pet policy, a pet is defined as a domesticated animal that is small enough to fit in a carrier and be stowed under the seat in front of you. This includes dogs, cats, birds, and small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Pets are not considered carry-on or checked baggage.
Travel with Pets
Pets are allowed to travel on Skywest Airlines flights, provided they meet the requirements outlined in this policy. All pets must be transported in a well-ventured carrier that is stowed under the seat in front of you. The carrier must be leak-proof, escape-proof, and properly ventilated, and must meet the following dimensions:
Maximum dimensions: 17"L x 12.5"W x 8"H
Maximum weight: 20 pounds (including carrier and pet)
Service animals that assist passengers with disabilities are allowed to travel on Skywest Airlines flights free of charge, and are not considered pets. Service animals must be trained to assist with a specific disability, and must be able to behave in a public setting. Passengers traveling with service animals should contact Skywest Airlines in advance to make arrangements.
A fee of $125.00 USD per pet carrier, per flight segment, will be charged for pets traveling in the cabin. This fee is non-refundable and applies to each way of travel, including connecting flights.
Advance Reservations for Pets:
Passengers traveling with pets must contact Skywest Airlines in advance to make arrangements for pet travel. Availability for pet travel is limited, and reservations for pet travel must be made at least 48 hours prior to flight departure.

Pets are not allowed on flights that have a scheduled flight time of more than 12 hours.
Only one pet carrier is allowed per passenger.
Pets must be kept in the carrier at all times while in the airport and on the flight.
Passengers traveling with pets may not sit in an emergency exit row or in the bulkhead seats.
All pets must be in good health, and must have a current health certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian. The health certificate must be dated within 10 days of travel and must state that the pet is in good health, and is fit to travel by air.
Skywest Airlines is not liable for injury, loss, or death of a pet traveling on its flights. By accepting pet travel on its flights, Skywest Airline assumes no responsibility or liability for illness or injury to the pet.
