Bahamas Air Pet Policy

The carriage of pets (such as cats and dogs) as baggage is subject to the tariff of each carrier participating in the itinerary. Carriage is also subject to Customs and Health Department regulations (refer to Immigration Guide) of all countries from, to or through which the pets may be carried. This Bulletin summarizes general requirements for carriage on Bahamasair.

Cats and dogs only are acceptable as cabin pets. A maximum of two (2) pets will be allowed in the cabin on any flight. Travelers must advise at time of booking that they intend to travel with a pet to avoid exceeding the limit. Where there are no bookings, cabin pets will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Pets must be a minimum of 8 weeks old. Pet carrier dimensions should not exceed 10” x 15” x 14”.

Pet must be able to stand up, turn around and lie down in a natural position in the carrier.

The cabin pet carrier is included in the maximum number of carry-on items allowed and the fee is $75 one way. The combined maximum weight of carrier and pet must not exceed 20 pounds and only one pet is allowed per pet carrier. Each passenger is only allowed one pet carrier.

Passengers are responsible to determine and comply with state entry requirements (travel to US, Turks & Caicos, Cuba) for their pets. Passengers traveling with pets will not be given seat assignments in emergency exit rows or rows with no forward under seat stowage. The carrier must fit under the seat in front of the passenger. The pet must remain in the carrier at all times.

We reserve the right to refuse acceptance of pets displaying aggressive behaviour, illness offensive odour, that require special attention during flight, or if the condition of the pet carrier is considered inadequate. Carriage as baggage is at owner’s risk.

We maintain the right to refuse acceptance of any animal that is exhibiting aggressive behavior.
