Travelling with Pets
Regulations regarding the carriage of animals are complex, and vary from country to country and airline to airline. You are advised to contact the authorities in the destination country, as well as seek advice from your airline or a specialist pet travel agency before planning your journey.
Please note that guide dogs and hearing dogs are the only dogs permitted in the terminal building, unless by prior arrangement with the airline.
Airlines will only carry animals if advanced arrangements have been made, as space is often limited. There are two options and your airline will be able to tell you which services they are able to offer:
- Accompanied baggage
- Most airlines will accept animals as accompanied baggage providing they are in a suitable container. They will travel in the baggage compartment where a suitable environment can be maintained.
- Air cargo
- Owners can arrange for their animals to travel as air cargo without making the journey themselves.
