Travelling with animals

We look after your pets as if they were our own. Their safety and comfort is our first priority.
If you need information on travelling with service dogs, please visit the section on service animal.

If your pet is travelling as check-in baggage, the transportation fee is not covered by your free baggage allowance. Please refer to the below table to calculate the cost.

As not all countries accept pets travelling as check-in baggage, please contact your local reservations office to confirm your pet can travel this way.
