think about its comfort
Put your pet in a closed but well-ventilated travel container enabling it to stand up and turn around.
Have a well-adapted travel container which meets specific required standards for any flight, whether in the cabin or in the baggage hold. Please contact your veterinary or pet-shop prior to your travel to get relevant information on the best adapted containers.
Are allowed in the cabin:
- Dogs and cats under 8 kg only (including the travel container)
- Guide or assistance dogs, regardless of their weight.
It is essential that you provide a container meeting very specific required standards (cage or well adapted bag) for your pet’s travel.
The passenger must place the container at his feet , total 3 dimensions shall not exceed 115 cm ( recommended dimensions : 46L x 24H x 28l ).
The total weight of the animal and the container must not exceed 8 kilos. Only one animal is allowed per container and per customer.
Conditions for accepting brachycephalic (flat-nosed) dogs and cats:
Because of high temperatures and stress, animals with flat noses, such as carlins, boxers, bulldogs or pekinese and Persian cats could experience breathing difficulties during the flight. The compressed shape of their noses could block their respiratory tracts and endanger their lives in the thin air of a plane.
Dog and cat owners must consult their veterinarians before boarding a flight with their dog.
The fees for a single flight for any pet travelling in the cabin is 30 € on all national flights, 55€ from or to another country of Europe, payable directly at the airport only, prior to each travel.
Transport in the baggage hold is compulsory for cats and dogs over 8 kg.
The passenger must prepare the transport of his animal, based on these precise specifications:
• The pet carrier, provided by you, must consist of a rigid fibreglass or plastic "shell"
with at least two door-closing systems.
• In ATR planes the pet carrier must be no larger than 92x61x66 cm (commonly called a n°2 cage).
• On CRJs and E-Jets, the pet carrier must be no larger than 102x67x77cm (commonly called a n°4 cage).
• The animal and pet carrier combined must weigh no more than 75 kg.
