MILITARY PET TRAVEL

We believe furry members of your family should go where you do. That’s why we accept animals as checked baggage on Delta flights only for active U.S. Military or active U.S. State Department Foreign Service Officers (FSO) & their spouses with active transfer orders, such as a Permanent Change of Station. Explore our complete guide to Military Pet Travel.

ANIMALS ACCEPTED AS CARRY-ON BAGGAGE

For small dogs, cats and household birds, it’s possible to carry them on your flight as long as you pass through security. Review the requirements for carry-on pets.

ANIMALS ACCEPTED AS CHECKED BAGGAGE

You may transport up to two kennels per flight and some restrictions may apply. Some giant-sized kennels must be shipped as cargo with another professional provider, due to space requirements. Review Military Pet Travel guidelines.
