Pets carried in the hold

Animals that cannot be transported inside the cabin will be transported in appropriate containers in an air-conditioned area of the hold of the aircraft.

  • A pet weighing over 40 kg (88 lb) must be transported in a strong transportation box.
  • All transportation boxes must comply with the IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations and they must be large enough to allow the pet to stand up straight and turn around. See IATA’s regulations.
  • If the total weight of the pet and its box exceeds 50 kg (110 lb), the pet must be shipped as cargo.
  • All unaccompanied animals are also shipped as cargo. Please contact Finnair Cargo.
