Pets aboard

Carrying pets, especially dogs, in the cabin is possible on many airlines, but is subject to strict rules and restrictions that may vary depending on the airline and destination. Generally, the following rules apply:

  1. Weight and size: most airlines only allow small dogs in the cabin, which together with the crate usually cannot exceed 8-10 kg. The dimensions of the crate must be such that it fits under the seat in front of you.

  2. Type of transport box: The box must be secure, impermeable and well ventilated. The animal must remain inside the box during the flight and must not be on the seat.

  3. Restrictions on board: Dogs are not allowed to sit on seats, and usually cannot be near emergency exits or in the front row. Some aircraft types may have specific crate size requirements.

  4. Health and age restrictions:Dogs must have all necessary vaccinations, be microchipped and usually be older than 8-12 weeks, depending on the airline.

  5. Fees:There is a fee for transporting a dog in the cabin, which varies by destination and airline.

  6. International flights: additional requirements such as health certificates and quarantine measures according to the country of destination must be met before international flights.

It is important to check the specific requirements and conditions of your chosen airline before travelling, and to make sure you have all the necessary documents and that your pet meets all the health requirements of the destination.
