Top 4 Pet Carriers For JetBlue Airways

According to a new report, JetBlue Airways is the 6th-best airline in the United States. The low-cost airline excelled by offering free amenities, per the report. According to Cassandra Happe, a WalletHub analyst, JetBlue Airways provides a comfortable flight experience with amenities such as Wi-Fi and extra legroom, as well as complimentary snacks and beverages. JetBlue Airways also ranks as the 6th most pet-friendly airline in the country.

However, it only accepts dogs and cats and does not currently provide cargo service. JetBlue also allows service animals to travel with their owner in any seat except the emergency exit row. JetBlue accepts both soft-sided and hard-sided pet carriers. However, the carrier, whether soft-sided or otherwise, must not exceed certain dimensions.

JetBlue Airways Pet Carrier Size Requirements

JetBlue pet policy requires your pet carrier not to exceed the following dimensions: 17" Long x 12.5" Wide x 8.5" High. In addition, the carrier must be well-ventilated and have a leak-proof bottom. Furthermore, your cat or dog must be able to stand up and move around inside the carrier with ease. Only one pet carrier is allowed per passenger and the number of pets is limited to six pets per flight.

The pet and the carrier, which must fit under the seat in front of you, count as one personal item. Only one pet is allowed per carrier, in which the pet must remain while at the airport and on the plane. In addition, your pet must be able to turn around comfortably in the carrier when it’s closed, as required by JetBlue.
