Since the Covid Pandemic hit, many airlines have been changing their policies and often customer service agents are not aware of the latest changes. Please remember to check the airline website before booking your trip.
December 2019: United no longer allows rabbits in the cabin. We recommend that folks call United to ask them to change their policy back to when rabbits were allowed!
*July 2020: A customer reported that Frontier no longer allows rabbits in the cabin, although their website says that they are allowed. We recommend that folks call Frontier to confirm before traveling.
*October 2020: A customer reported that she traveled with her rabbit in October on Frontier and they DID allow her rabbit to travel in the cabin.
Rabbits only allowed in the cargo area as checked baggage

When booking your flight, please be sure that the flight is actually operated by one of the above airlines when booking. Many airlines offer flights that are actually operated by other airlines that do not allow rabbits. In addition, the rules vary based on country of origin and destination, so if you are not traveling within the United States, please check to make sure that each leg of your trip is covered before you finalize your booking.
An in-cabin pet fee or pet ticket is required and may need to be paid in advance or at the airport at check-in (if so, give yourself extra time on the day of travel), check with the airline when booking your ticket.
Starting in 2020, due to the emergence of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) in the Southwest United States, some states have new rules about the entry of rabbits into the state. Check the State Veterinarian’s website for any state you are traveling in/to for requirements. A Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) within a certain number of hours before entry into the state may be required.
