Spirit Airlines Pet Policy 

Pet lovers always wish to carry their pets along while travelling. There are numerous airlines which do not allow pets on-board but Spirit airlines provide special assistance to the pets.

If a passenger is travelling with Spirit airlines, they can carry their pets along with them. To make them travel along, the passenger has to make booking for the pets also. Either the booking can be made in advance with the passenger booking or on the spot booking at the airport on the departure day. The pets that are allowed on the board should be small domesticated pets according to Spirit airlines pet policy. The pets that can be carried along are dogs, cats, household birds and domestic rabbits. If the passenger needs to carry the pet without prior info, then they need to check-in early at the airport to complete the formalities. The reservation centre of the airline can also be contacted for making the booking for pets.

Spirit Airlines pet policy is as follows:

  • The airline does not ask for any health certificate of the pets travelling with the passenger.
  • The birds are not allowed in some of the flights from the cities of Puerto Rico or USVI.
  • The airline does not allow exotic pets like rodents, snakes, etc.
