An update on Live Animals The previous embargo regarding Live Animal shipments traveling to the United States from international locations will be partially lifted, effective June 15, 2020.

Effective Monday, June 15, 2020, Live Animals will be permitted to travel via American Airlines to the United States flights from all international locations, with the exception of Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Spain.

For animals traveling internationally into the U.S., American has a partnership with U.S customs licensed broker Coppersmith Global Logistics. Coppersmith works closely with importers to ensure all information is correct and complete prior to loading, and will then electronically file for release before the animal arrives in the U.S.   Should you elect to use this service for animal travel, broker fees will depend on flight departure and arrival times in the U.S. Fees can be found on

Summer Travel Reminder: As we get closer to summer temperatures, please keep in mind we cannot accept warm-blooded Live Animals when the temperature will be above 85 degrees Fahrenheit at time of acceptance, in the connecting city or at the destination city at time of arrival.

As a reminder, we will not accept Live Animals from May 1 to Sept. 30 to, from, or through Phoenix, AZ (PHX), Las Vegas, NV (LAS), Tucson, AZ (TUS) and Palm Springs, CA (PSP).
