Frequently asked questions

Can I travel with my pet?

Small pets, such as cats, dogs and pet rabbits, can travel with you in the cabin on our flights, given that the total weight of the pet and the pet carrier does not exceed 8 kg (17 lb).  

Bigger pets can travel in the hold on the same flight with you, if the combined weight of the pet and its pet carrier is less than 50 kg (110 lb). If your pet and its box weigh together over 50 kg (110 lb), the pet needs to be shipped as cargo. Also, to/via some countries you can only ship pets as cargo.

More exotic pets, such as snakes, lizards, birds or insects, always need to be shipped as cargo. All unaccompanied animals and animals brought by a third person from outside the EU will be shipped as cargo as well. 

Also, different countries have different regulations regarding travelling with pets. Some countries may have entry limitations for certain animals or breeds.

We recommend that you find out the specific regulations for your destination from the nearest consulate or embassy.
