All Animals must be transported in airline approved Kennels provided by the customer. Alaska Seaplanes no longer has kennels available for use by customers. All passengers expecting to travel with an animal must declare the animal at the time of the reservation.
To ship an unaccompanied animal, please call ahead to make arrangements. Animals are shipped as space becomes available. We do not take "reservations" for animals. All unaccompanied animals must be brought 1 hour prior to departure times, and picked up immediately upon arrival to its final destination. If animals are not picked up and the responsible party is not able to be reached, this can and will result in the involvement of the local animal control. Any fees associated to the negligence of the animal will be the responsibility of the animal owner. In the case of weather delays or cancellations, we require any animals to be picked up and cared for until which time we are able to accommodate the transportation of the animal.
Due to our size and weight limitations, not all animals are able to be accommodated. Animals can be refused to fly if they cause disruption to the comfort and/or safety to the flight or other passengers in any way.
If passengers are traveling with a service animal, please call your local office after booking the reservation to ensure space is available.
Unaccompanied Animal Fee: additional $25 fee
