Pet transport

How to get your pet safely to your destination

  • Cat in travel carriage
    Turn your travel crate into a cozy room, for example by placing your pet's favorite blanket or toy inside. The familiar smell will have a comforting effect. 
  • Dog & feeding bowl
    Your pet should become accustomed to the transport crate before the flight. Leave it in the crate frequently for one or two hours at a time and reward it afterwards with a favorite treat.
  • Vetenary surgeon examines puppy
    Consult your veterinarian before flying to find out whether your pet will tolerate sedatives, as such medication may lead to circulatory problems.
