Travelling in the cabin

Only dogs and cats weighing up to a maximum of 8 kg including the pet carrier may travel in the cabin.

If your pet is travelling in the cabin, it must do so in a waterproof soft container (maximum dimensions 55 x 40 x 23 cm) with adequate circulation.

The container must be closed whilst on board and your pet's head must stay within the pet container. The animal is not allowed to leave the container during your stay on board. The container must be stowed under your seat for the duration of the flight. The nature of the seats on the Airbus 330/340 makes this impossible in Business Class. The crew will put the transport container in the wardrobe, in an overhead locker, or under an Economy Class seat for takeoff and landing.;;; ;;; If you want to take your pet in the cabin with you, it is essential that you book this in advance, up to 4 days before your departure, through your booking centre.

The right pet carrier

Do take the greatest possible care when purchasing the suitable transport carrier for your pet. Remember that you are taking your pet out of its normal environment, and that might cause it to feel stressed. Tip: It is a good idea to try and get your pet accustomed to its carrier before you travel.

Transport carrier in the hold

You as the owner of the animal are responsible for paying to rent or purchase the suitable pet carrier. Transport boxes are available from the Swissport Supervisor desk or from any good pet shop.
