Travel with animals

Explorer C

Can you travel with a pet on your person. Doesn't need to go under the seat. Will be in a zippered bonding bag. A sugar glider.

No, pets must be contained.  Here is Southwest's policy:

Southwest Airlines allows small vaccinated domestic cats and dogs to travel with you in-cabin under the seat in front of you. All pets must be carried in an appropriate carrier.


The whole policy and more details about approved containers can be found at

Southwest only allows cats and small dogs. You can't bring your sugar glider.
