Starting July 15, Air Canada will be banning all pets from their passenger planes. Last September, the airline decided to stop carrying pets in the cabin due to concerns over passengers with allergies.
The airline decided to stop carrying pets in the cargo hold because of “increasing load factors as well as tighter security measures that are leading people to check more bags.”

“Animals in the hold actually reduce the amount of space we have for luggage because you’ve got to leave an area for ventilation or oxygen and as well they require extra handling,” said airline spokeperson Peter Fitzpatrick.
