WestJet Cargo safely and securely transports many commodities throughout the year. It has a number of industry-leading special handling practices, in particular as it pertains to some of the most precious cargo, your pets!

Your furry family members deserve the highest standard of care and many factors are taken into consideration when WestJet helps plan your trip. In addition to ensuring the travel conditions are suitable for Fifi or Fido’s weight and size, the carrier also considers the climate at both the departure and arrival stations.

WestJet Cargo employees are specifically trained to attend to four-legged friends and will always go the extra mile to ensure their journey is safe and comfortable.

Kirsten de Bruijn, Executive Vice-President of WestJet cargo, said: “The entire team at WestJet Cargo is committed to ensuring we exceed customer expectations. We know that pets are amongst the most valuable cargo we have the privilege to transport; we have put every safety measure in place to guarantee reliable and stress-free travel.”

In 2022 alone, over 11,000 cats and dogs traveled with WestJet Cargo! The airline offers access to dedicated animal lounges in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Halifax airports. WestJet Cargo is pleased to offer pet transportation services throughout Canada, Europe and the US, as well as the Caribbean, Mexico and (coming soon!) Japan.
