ANIMALS TRAVELING

The airline your pet will love!

Our four-legged frie-nds should also get to travel comfortably!

I just want my dog to be comfortable

Keep him with you! You may keep your dog or cat weighing less than 8 kg (including the travel container) with you in the cabin, as well as assistance dogs of any weight.

Just because it’s bigger, it doesn’t need any less attention!

recomendations

To make sure everything goes smoothly for my pet and me

Travelling with your pet is easy!

Make your own booking on our website, then call us to book your pet’s trip. At the airport, be at the check-in counter at least one hour before your flight.

MAKE SURE YOUR PET’S PAPERS ARE IN ORDER
The animal’s vaccination booklet must be shown when checking in.

Your animal must be tattooed or microchipped.

MANAGING ITS STRESS AND COMFORT

Animals travel better when they had been a bit active before. Make sure it lightly exercises before leaving home.

Place it in an enclosed, ventilated travel container that allows it to stand up and turn around.

Whether it is travelling in the cabin or the hold, we urge you to consult a pet shop or a veterinarian in advance to obtain a suitable and compliant travel container.

For its well-being and its health, you must consult your veterinarian before travelling by plane with your pet.
