May I see your Passport, Please?
Your pets passport or health certificate must be in English. It is strongly recommended to attach a copy of it to the kennel. Make sure to bring the original documents with you when you check in.


Vaccinations & Health Issues
Within the EU animals are only allowed to travel when fitted with a microchip and must be vaccinated against rabies. Your pet must not appear to be physically distressed, injured or tranquilized. To avoid stress for your hairy or feathered friend, consider travelling during low season. Early morning or late night flights tend to be less crowded.


Guide dogs are mostly carried free of charge.


Fighting Dogs
Special requirements apply to the transportation of breeds of dog classified as fighting dogs. Be sure to contact the reservation desk of your airline for more information if you are travelling with one of the following breeds or crossbreeds:

Pet travel adviceRodents on Board
Gnawers like to travel, especially when there is tasty food aboard. However, if they start chewing up electric wires, rats on board an aircraft can lead to a catastrophe. If that happens, pilots will have no control over any system on board - a disaster! The animals enter the plane on catering vans. This happens across the world.
