Calgarians planning to travel with pets this holiday season may have to revise their plans.

Both major airlines are not accepting pets as cargo this holiday season.

"There is a blackout period, there is an embargo by both WestJet and Air Canada placed on pets being transported as checked baggage with you as a ticketed passenger or booked as cargo," said Karen Shiel, who owns a relocation company that helps people move with their pets.

Some smaller pets will be allowed in the cabin.

The Calgary Eyeopener’s Angela Knight spoke with Shiel on Monday morning, listen to the audio above for Shiel's advice.
