How to Travel with Cremated Remains

Travel with cremated remains

Most airlines allow cremated remains on board as carry-on or checked baggage, but the container holding the remains must pass through the x-ray machine or it will not be allowed through security. Cremated remains can also be air-shipped as cargo but only by known shippers (a “known shipper” is designated as such after passing inspection and qualification rules set by Transport Canada). In addition, to transport remains on an airplane, you must provide a death or cremation certificate for the cremated remains in order to carry them on board.
