Pet transport modalities

Unaccompanied baggage (cargo)

Unaccompanied baggage (cargo) is the term used when pets travel alone as a result of one of the following reasons:

  • You need to send your pets before or after you travel.
  • You may be traveling on the same flight but prefer that a professional third party handles the pet travel preparation process and you only receive the pets at your destination.
  • Restrictions from the airlines may allow large pets to travel only under this modality, i.e., UNITED, DELTA, COPA.

Checked baggage

Checked baggage is the term used when you book your pets under your own airline ticket and you hand the pets over at the airline counter as part of your baggage. Note that not all airlines allow this option. Airlines such as KLM do and DELTA does depending on the season.


In the cabin is the term used when you plan to take the pets and place them under your seat because they are very small and because the airline allows it.
