The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) regulate which items can and cannot be brought onboard. For all domestic U.S. flights, we recommend checking this list of prohibited items before packing. For Canadian flights, check this list of prohibited items in Canada.
For all flights it is highly suggested to contact your airline directly to inquire about specific items, as airline policies differ from country to country.
Some airlines permit animals to be brought onboard either as a carry-on item or checked in the cargo area of the aircraft. Contact your airline directly well before your scheduled departure for more information regarding applicable pet fees and policies.
All U.S. and Canadian airlines are required to accept trained service animals, although in most cases they are not permitted to occupy a seat. Contact the airline well before your scheduled departure to advise. You may need to provide documentation in order for the service animal to board.
Oversized, overweight, unconventional, and additional items brought onboard may require additional fees from the airline.
