Can I travel with my pet?
We allow cats, dogs, pet rabbits, tortoises and hedgehogs to be transported onboard our flights, either in the cabin or in the aircraft hold, when the requirements for carrying pets are met. Ferrets can only be carried in the aircraft hold. All other animal species are forbidden onboard our flights.
Please note that rabbits, tortoises and hedgehogs are allowed onboard our flights only when the travel starts from an EU country. If you are travelling from a non-EU country into the EU, only dogs, cats and ferrets are allowed.
Small pets 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 max. 75kg (165lb) on Finnair-operated flights and max. 50kg (110lb) on Norra-operated flights. If your pet and its box exceed the maximum weight, the pet needs to be shipped as cargo. Also, to/via some countries you can only ship pets as cargo.
All other animals except dogs, cats, pet rabbits, tortoises, hedgehogs and ferrets must 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.
