    • Pets as check-in baggage

      Your cat or dog may travel in a temperature-controlled, pressurized hold:

      •    In a kennel that complies with IATA rules and does not exceed the following measures: 100X65X70 cm.  
      •    The transport container must be large enough for the animal to stand in its natural position, to turn around and to lie down. 
      •    The transport container must be designed to be leak-proof, e.g. lined with absorbent material such as newspapers, cardboard or blankets. 
      •    The container must be escape proof. We recommend sturdy plastic or wood containers made from harmless and non-toxic material. Wire-mesh cages are not allowed. 
      •    To prevent the animal from injuring itself, the interior of the container must not have any sharp corners, edges or nails. 
      •    If the container has castors, these must be removed. 
      •    Food and water bowls (empty) must be attached to the inside or the outside of the container. The material must be harmless and non-toxic. 
      •    Transport containers must have ventilation holes on at least three sides . 
      •    The animal’s lead, harness or tether must be tied or affixed to the top of the container. You can also carry it in your hand luggage. This ensures that there is no risk of your animal strangling itself in the container. 

      Breeds which are classified as fighting dogs may only be transported in special containers/crates. This does not apply to puppies between 3 and 6 months old. The following breeds and crossbreeds are classified as fighting dogs: 

      •    American Pit Bull Terrier 
      •    American Staffordshire Terrier 
      •    Staffordshire Bull Terrier 
      •    Bull Terrier (Miniature Bull Terriers are not considered fighting dogs) 
      •    American Bulldog 
      •    Caucasian Ovcharka (Caucasian Shepherd Dog)  
      •    Dogo Argentino 
      •    Karabash (Kangal Dog) (Anatolian Shepherd Dog) 
      •    Rottweiler 

      Dogs which belong to the pug-nosed breeds are especially sensitive to temperature and stress. We therefore recommend that you do not transport your dog if the temperature at your departure, transfer or destination airport is very high. The at-risk breeds include: 

      •    Boston Terrier 
      •    Boxer 
      •    Bull Dog (all breeds except the American Bulldog) 
      •    Chow Chow

      •    English Toy Spaniel 
      •    Pugs 
      •    Pekinese 
      •    Shih Tzu 
      This recommendation also applies to crossbreeds.

      Always make the reservation for your pet’s transportation by telephone at least 48 hours in advance. 

      Charge per flight:     €100 for kennels up to80x55x55cm 
                                     €200 for  kennels up 100x65x70cm
