Silver's Pet Policy
Pets In Cabin
Silver Airways will accept domestic cats, dogs and household birds for transportation.
The acceptance of animals is subject to the conditions below:
Animals will only be accepted for transportation in the passenger compartment, except when traveling on the seaplane – where the special provisions are fully explained here.
Advance arrangements must be made
The animal must be harmless, inoffensive, odorless, and require no attention during transit
The animal must be confined in a container subject to inspection and approval by the Carrier before acceptance
The animal's container can be no larger than 17”L x 16”W x 9”H and must be stowed under the seat.
The passenger must make all arrangements, and assume full responsibility for complying with any applicable laws, customs, and/or other governmental regulations, requirements, or restrictions of the country, state, or territory to which the animal is being transported
The maximum number of animal containers per aircraft is ten, in order to ensure the safety and well-being of any animal transported
Carriage of animals is limited to one animal per container, except that two kittens or two puppies under 10 weeks of age, or two household birds will be permitted in a single container
Containers for transporting animals must be supplied by the passenger
Containers must be leak proof, structurally sound, free from all broken wires or protrusions, and properly ventilated
Containers must be large enough for pet to stand, sit and change positions comfortably
Containers must never be locked as animals must be accessible in case of emergency
Additional Requirements for Carriage of Animals in the Passenger Compartment:
Animals are not permitted with unaccompanied children
Animals are not permitted to occupy a passenger seat as cabin seat baggage unless a separate seat is purchased; animal will remain in the carrier
After check-in, the animal must remain in the container while in the boarding area and on board the aircraft
The container must be stored under the seat directly in front of the passenger
Passengers are limited to one animal container each
The carriage of pets in cabin is subject to a service charge per animal container, each way, as follows:
Domestic and international flights: $98
Special note: Silver Airways will not accept gaming birds under any circumstance
Silver Airways will permit a trained service animal to accompany a qualified individual with a disability. A service animal should sit in the floor space in front of the passenger's assigned seat but cannot protrude into the aisles. Passengers may use an approved in-cabin kennel no larger than 17”L x 16”W x 9”H for smaller animals provided its use meets stowage requirements. Exit row seating is prohibited.
Effective January 11, 2021, a customer traveling with trained service dogs will be required to fill out a DOT form confirming the animal meets training and health qualifications. The customer should present the documentation at the ticket counter or at the departure gate. Additional documentation may be required for an animal traveling to international destinations.
EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS
Effective January 11, 2021, Silver will no longer accept emotional support animal bookings on any Silver or Seaborne flight. This change follows a final rule issued last month by the U.S. Department of Transportation, which states carriers are no longer required to recognize emotional support animals as service animals. The DOT's final rule is available here. Effective with the new DOT rule, emotional support animals will be transported in accordance with pets in cabin policies and procedures for those that qualify. Silver and Seaborne continues to accept domestic cats, dogs, and household birds for transportation, subject to the policies already in effect.
