When traveling by air, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to bringing your furry friend along. Many airlines allow small pets in the cabin of the plane, but some only allow them in the cargo hold.

If you’re looking to bring your chinchilla on board with you, Air Europa and Finnair are two airlines that allow small rodents in the cabin. However, if your chinchilla is too large to fit in a carrier that meets the airline’s size requirements, they will have to travel in the cargo hold.

Aegean Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Japan Airlines, and WestJet are a few of the airlines that allow pet rodents in the cargo hold. Before booking your flight, be sure to check with your airline to see what their policies are for bringing pets on board.

You’ll need to contact the airline for more specific information on their policies and to make arrangements for your chinchilla to travel with you.

My own travel story

I had been researching airlines and their policies for traveling with a chinchilla for a while before I finally found one that would work for me. I was happy to find that Air Europa allowed small rodents in the cabin of the plane.

I was worried about my chinchilla being too large to fit in a carrier that met the airline’s size requirements, but I contacted the airline and they assured me that my chinchilla would be able to travel with me.

I was also happy to find that Aegean Air, Alaska Airlines, Finnair, Japan Airlines, and WestJet all allowed pet rodents in the cargo hold.

Before booking my flight, I made sure to check with the airline to make sure their policies had not changed. I also contacted the airline to make arrangements for my chinchilla to travel with me.

I was able to fly with my chinchilla without any problems and we had a great time!
