OWG allows traveling with domestic animal companions such as dogs, cats and birds. These pets can travel inside the cabin, provided they stay in a soft-sided animal transport bag at all times. Hard-sided carriers, cages or cardboard boxes are not accepted in the cabin. Please note that the soft-sided transportation bags will be counted as a carry-on item.

Please refer to the following guidelines:

  • The soft-sided pet travel carrier must be small enough to fit under the seat in front of the traveler.
  • It must be well ventilated (on at least 2 sides).
  • It must have a waterproof bottom.
  • The animal must be able to fully stand up in the travel bag.
  • Each traveler may travel with only one soft-sided pet travel carrier, but can carry 2 pets, given that they can both breathe and move comfortably within the bag.
  • The pet must remain in the soft bag at all times.
  • A traveler cannot purchase a seat for a domesticated animal or attach a travel pet carrier to a seat.
  • For safety reasons, the exit row seats are unavailable for travelers traveling with a pet.
  • OWG reserves the right to refuse boarding if the criteria above is not met, if the animal is showing signs of sickness.
NB: Rabbits, hamsters, rats, mice, iguanas, spiders, snakes and guinea pigs are not accepted.

We do not carry animals in the cargo compartment, therefore, if your animal doesn’t respect these guidelines, we cannot transport your furry friend.
