We often receive questions about breed restrictions for various airlines, so we thought we'd pass this update along about Alaska Air Cargo's PetStreak program.
According to their website, Alaska Air Cargo has restricted future bookings of snub-nosed dogs and cats while they conduct a safety review of possible acceptance policies.
For now, the following breeds cannot fly via Alaska Air Cargo:
Cats: Burmese, Exotic, Himalayan, Persian
Dogs: American Pit Bull, American Staffordshire, Boston Terrier, Brussels Griffin, Bull Mastiff, Bull Terrier, Chow Chow, Dutch Pug, English Bulldog, English Toy Spaniel, French Bulldog, Japanese Boxer, Japanese Spaniel, Pekinese Pug, Shih Tzu, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Terrier, Bulldog, Pug, Boxer
Note that this airline also has a few holiday flight restrictions for pet cargo travel (as will many cargo operations, so double check everything before you plan a flight near Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's). Different rules apply to pets traveling in the cabin -- go here to find out more.
Safe travels, everyone!
