Does InselAir allow pets?

InselAir does allow a limited number of small pets in kennels on-board MD-80 aircraft with the restriction that the kennel must fit completely under the seat in front of you. The pets must remain in the kennel from boarding to deplaning and the kennel will be considered your carry-on baggage and is subject to the same restrictions. The decision to allow a kennel in the cabin is completely at the discretion of the check-in personnel and, ultimately, the captain of the aircraft. All kennels not meeting these requirements must be checked and will count as part of your checked baggage allowance.
Pets are not allowed in the cabin of EMB 110 aircraft and must be checked. These restrictions do not apply to service animals. All passengers traveling with animals should check with the embassy of their destination country and the customs service of their home country regarding admission/re-admission requirements for animals.

What are the requirements for service animals?
Passengers with service animals must inform InselAir at the time of reservation about the type of service animal that will be traveling and any arrangements that need to be made. Passengers should also have available a certified statement from a medical provider about the need of a service animal, should it be requested. As with pets, please check the admission requirements for both your destination and your return home regarding animals.
