1. What are the transport methods for pets provided by Frontier Airlines?
Midwest Airlines allows animals to travel as checked baggage or shipped separately, as freight.
2. Can I take my pet in the passenger cabin?
Only service animals are allowed in the passenger cabin. Any other animals must travel as checked baggage or as freight.
3. How can I take my pet with me as checked baggage?
To travel as checked baggage, your pet must be inside an approved container and have a current veterinarian health certificate. For safety purposes, pets requiring a muzzle will not be accepted.
4. What are the kennel requirements?
- Airline-approved plastic kennels, not exceeding the dimensions of 40L/27W/30H, are accepted. These are available at pet supply stores. Wood and metal kennels are not permitted.
- Clean bedding (such as shredded paper or a blanket) should be used in the kennel.
- You must display feeding/water instructions, even if your pet is to receive no food or water.
- The kennel must be marked clearly on the top and at least one side with the words "LIVE ANIMALS" in letters not less than one inch high.
Please call the airline for additional information.
5. What kind of health documents do I need for my pet?
A veterinarian's certificate of health is required and must be issued within 10 days of departure date. Health certificates are generally valid for 30 days. Therefore, if your return travel is beyond 30 days, a new certificate will be needed for the return flight.
6. Are there any other pet-related restrictions with Frontier Airlines?
- Live animals are not accepted for transfer to other airline flights.
- The company will require passengers checking a snub-nosed/brachycephalic animal to sign a waiver releasing the company from liability; the waiver will be required anytime this breed of animal is offered for transportation as checked baggage.
- Midwest has the right to inspect the carrier and refuse a pet
based on the animal’s health and disposition.
- If another passenger without a pet refuses to board due to a pet onboard, the
passenger with the pet will be accommodated on a later flight; no denied boarding compensation will be paid.
7. What are the fees Frontier Airlines is charging for pet transport services?
If you want to travel with a pet, you should know that a $150 one-way charge applies, advance arrangements must be made, and the kennel must be inspected and approved by Midwest.
For regulations and fees that apply to pets shipped as cargo, please contact Midwest Airlines Cargo at 800-892-6580, extension 5.
