The Canadian Kennel Club has confirmed the following change in Air Canada’s pet travel regulations regarding pets in the cabin:
As of September 18, 2006, all pets (except certified, professionally trained service animals which are assisting persons with disabilities) will be banned from its passenger cabins on all flights world-wide. As a result, pets will only be allowed to travel in the baggage compartment and via Air Canada Cargo. Please note that pets cannot be accepted for travel in the baggage compartment or through Air Canada Cargo from December 18, 2006 throughout January 7, 2007.
