If you’re flying across the country or going abroad entirely, you’ll want to know if your corgi can come with you and if they can be in the cabin with you.

Can I Take My Corgi On a Plane?

In most cases, yes. Corgis are generally allowed to fly on a plane as long as they are properly contained in a pet carrier and under the weight that airlines set. But keep reading to learn something important!

Still, it’s always best to check with the specific airline you’ll be flying with for their specific policies and requirements for flying with a pet. As not every airline will allow it.

Can Corgis Fly In The Cabin With You?

In most cases, yes. Corgis are usually allowed to fly in the cabin as long as they meet the size and weight restrictions for the airline you’re flying.

The weight could be an issue, though…

🎯 MOST airlines set their weight limit, including the carrier, to be 17-22 pounds (8-10kg). This means most corgis over about 6-7 months will likely be too heavy.

πŸ‘‰ Good news! At the moment, Delta, Southwest, and United Airlines have no weight limit.

And like before, your corgi will need to be contained in a pet carrier that meets the rules and requirements of the airline.

πŸ‘‰ These carriers typically need to be small enough to fit under the seat in front of you and to meet safety standards.

It’s always best to check with the airline you’ll be flying with for their policies and requirements for flying with a dog in the cabin.

Do Corgis Really Fit Under Airline Seats?

When we say “fit under” the seat, it’s not strictly underneath the actual seat, as that is in fact incredibly small.

But yes, corgis are small enough to fit “under” most airline seats. What this really means is that they can easily fit down on the floor where your legs go.

Still, as we’ve mentioned throughout, all airlines are different and you must find out the rules and sizing regulations from the specific airline you’ll be using.

What About Large Corgi Adults?

As explained above, most adult corgis over 6-7 months will likely be too heavy for most cabins.

Depending on the airline, only corgi pups may be small enough to fly in the cabin with you.

Do Corgis Have To Be In a Crate In the Cabin?

Will your corgi need to be in a crate/carrier, or can they go on a seat?

🎯 It’s practically always the case that dogs must remain inside their carrier/crate, on the floor and under the seat in front of you at all times.

Most airlines allowing dogs in the cabin have a policy that they must remain in their crate on the floor. They are not allowed up on a seat themself.

  • Meet the weight, age, and size requirement
  • Health certificate (primarily for going abroad and checking in with immigration)
  • Rabies certificate
  • Microchipped
  • Pet passport (not always)
  • Other potential vaccines (destination dependent)

Please ALWAYS google search the airline you are flying with for their full list of requirements, as well as checking the rules laid out by your destination country.

Some countries will require immigration documents and health certs (while others may not). This also applies to certain types of jabs.
