Frontier Airlines pet policy lies a bit more on the frontier side of the spectrum where they have few rules and require relatively little compared to other airlines. Instead, they put the onus on the pet owner to find and complete required documentation (if they wish) and adhere to the rules of the specific states and airports to which you are traveling.  

First thing to know, pets can ONLY fly in the cabin. Frontier pet policy does not allow animals to fly as checked baggage or as air cargo. However, you do need to check your pet in at the ticketing counter, just like you would bags that you are checking. It can be confusing, we know. Here’s what else you need to know about Frontier Airline pet policies.

  • Flying with Pets in the CabinFrontier allows more species than most airlines to travel in the cabin. Just like other airlines, size is the most common restriction. Be sure to learn about all the pet and carrier requirements that apply to Frontier Airline flights before finalizing your travel plans.  
  • Service Animal PoliciesFrontier also welcomes certified service animals and passengers with disabilities who travel with an assistance animal at their side. From service dogs to emotional support animals, find more information about the airline’s service animal policies. 

Other Frontier Airlines Pet Policies and Programs 

One of the things Frontier Airline pet policy will entitle you to as a passenger traveling with a pet is the airline’s Families First program. You’ll get a preassigned seat that’s pet-friendly. You’ll also be allowed to board early, something we recommend taking advantage of so that you and your pet can get safely and comfortably situated before the crush of the main boarding process begins.
