JetBlue only allows four pets on each flight, so it's important to book your pet's ticket as early as possible. To do so, simply call JetBlue at 1-800-JETBLUE and let the reservations agent know that you would like to travel with your pet. They will verify pet availability on the flights you are considering, and book your ticket over the phone. Only one pet is allowed per customer, but exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
JetBlue accepts small cats and dogs in the cabin on both domestic and international flights. Pets are not accepted on flights to or from, Barbados, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, and St. Lucia. Pets must remain completely in the carrier with the door closed and under the seat during the entire time that the pet is in the aircraft. The combined weight of the pet and carrier may not exceed 20 pounds. The pet fee is 100 USD each way.
Your pet must fit comfortably in a carrier that does not exceed 17 in x 12.5 in x 8.5 in. They must be able to stand up and move around in the carrier with ease. Carriers must have a leak proof bottom and must be well ventilated on at least two sides. If your carrier does not meet the guidelines, you can purchase one from JetBlue at the airport for 50 USD. Your pet and carrier will count as your one personal item.
Young children traveling without a parent or legal guardian are considered to be Unaccompanied Minors. Most airlines provide a service to assist these children from their point of departure to their final destination.
The service is mandatory for children ages 5-14 traveling without an adult.
Children under 5 years of age are not allowed to travel unless accompanied by an adult.
