Aeromexico pet policy allows travelers to travel with their pet as cabin baggage in the passenger cabin (small dogs and cats), as checked baggage in the aircraft hold (larger dogs and cats, and birds), and as air cargo baggage (larger as well as other animals). Service animals (only dogs) are allowed to travel free of charge with their owners.

Aeromexico pet travel policy permits one small dog or cat per passenger in the cabin, subject to certain conditions. Pets traveling as cabin or checked baggage must be at least 8 weeks old and are required to have up-to-date vaccinations, including rabies. The airline doesn’t allow pets that are undergoing veterinary treatment or are younger than 8 weeks to fly.

For in-cabin travel, your cat or dog must fit within the specified size and weight limits. Only one pet per passenger is allowed in the cabin, which includes emotional support and service animals.

Although no weight or size limit applies to service animals, they must still meet the airline’s criteria for assisting passengers with disabilities. Emotional support animals are allowed to travel in the passenger cabin, but weight and size restrictions apply.

For international travel, Aeromexico pet policy aligns with destination-specific regulations, such as the U.S. CDC’s guidelines on pet importation. You must complete all necessary documentation and health checks before your journey to ensure a smooth travel experience for your pet and yourself.
