The Loganair airlines pet travel policy for 2023 allows cats and dogs to travel in the hold as checked baggage on domestic flights only. No animals other than cats and dogs are permitted on Loganair’s aircraft. In addition, Loganair only permits registered Assistance & Service Dogs to travel in the cabin, and pets can’t be transported as cargo. Other pets aren’t accepted to fly in the Loganair cabin, just in the hold on domestic routes. When flying in the hold with Loganair, your cat or dog must be able to move around within their carrier, and they have to travel with an adult passenger. Puppies must be at least 12 weeks old. The cost of flying your pet with Loganair is £50 each way. Assistance & Service Dogs fly free of charge, but Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) aren’t accepted under the Loganair pet policy. Over the festive period from 17 December to 3 January, no pets are transported on Loganair flights except Assistance Dogs.

Pets in the cabin with Loganair Travel Policy
Loganair do not allow pets to travel in the cabin. Only registered Assistance & Service Dogs are permitted in the cabin on Loganair flights, therefore all other cats and dogs must fly in the hold of the plane.
Cats and dogs flying in the hold as checked baggage
Your pet can travel in the hold as checked baggage on domestic flights only, therefore they’ll check-in for the flight at the same airport desk as you. Your cat or dog will then fly in the hold of the plane, which is a secure, heated and air conditioned area.
Upon arrival at your destination, you’ll collect your pet in the airport baggage area.
To fly your cat or dog in the hold, you should complete the Loganair Liability and Health Certificate.
Cost of flying a pet in the hold with Loganair
The charge for flying your cat or dog in the Loganair hold is £50 per flight.
Flying a pet as cargo in the hold
A pet cargo service for cats and dogs isn’t offered by Loganair. You may only fly your feline or canine in the hold as checked baggage.
Assistance & Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals with Loganair
Loganair accepts registered Assistance & Service Dogs in the cabin, provided that they have been trained to assist you with a disability or medical condition. You dog must wear and identifiable harness or jacket at the airport and during the flight. You can’t book an Assistance Dog online with Loganair at the moment, so you need to call them to reserve a spot for your dog. Loganair asks that you do this at least 14 days prior to your departure.
You must be in possession of official documentation which confirms that your furry travel companion is a fully trained Assistance Dog or is under the control of a trainer. The documentation must be from one of the following recognised organisations:
- Assistance Dogs International (ADI)
- Assistance Dogs UK (ADUK)
- International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF)
Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) aren’t trained to perform a specific task for their owner, and therefore can’t travel under the Loganair Assistance & Service Dog policy. ESAs must fly under the standard Loganair pet policy, and therefore travel in the hold as checked baggage.
Remember to always protect your pet against vector-borne diseases in a foreign country, and leave a review if you fly your cat or dog with Loganair!
