- Thai Airways
- Royal Brunei Airlines
- Singaporean Airline
- United Airlines
Do airlines allow pet travel in the cabin?
The main 3 airlines that allow your pet to travel in the cabin are KLM, Lufthansa and TUI. But the only thing is that your pet should weigh less than 8 kgs provided you have put in a special request through your travel agent. The size of the pet should be enough to fit under the seat in front of the owner. You need to carry a soft cotton bag and see that the pet remains in the bag throughout your journey.
Otherwise, every other pet-friendly airline provides spacious pet travel in the cargo hold. Don’t worry. The space for the individual pet is equal to that of a first-class sleeper seat and the environment is strictly controlled, pressurised and air-conditioned.
Which flight should you book – Direct or Indirect?
As a pet-friendly travel agent, we will always advise you to book a direct flight option. However, even if you book an indirect flight if need be, just make sure that you are not changing the airline. Our travel agents will make sure that it is taken care of while booking a flight for your pets.
In case your airline has a stopover especially in long haul flights, we will make sure that the airline has the highest standards of safety. This way, your pet will have a chance to come out of their travel kennel, relieve themselves and stretch their legs. The airports like Amsterdam, Dubai, Frankfurt have one of the finest transit pet lounges.
Some pets do better when just getting the journey over and done with, there are no hard and fast rules, so we prefer to talk to you about the behaviour and confidence of your pet and make those kinds of decisions together with the owners who know them best.
Check-in at the Airport
Make sure you are arriving 4 hours prior to your departure if you are travelling with pets. So, let’s say if you have your flight with the British Airways from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle at 9:35 am; so make sure you get in latest by 05:35 am. This will give you an added advantage of going in early and get done with the arrival clearance procedures within normal working hours.
Dogs, cats or ferrets being flown out or into the UK require a pet passport and must be microchipped and vaccinated against rabies.
Fees and required pet-carrier size depend on the animal. So, please make sure that you are getting in touch with your travel agent before you book the flight for your pet.
