Moving Pets to Europe

Moving pets by air

In almost all airlines, pets must travel in the cargo hold, either as excess baggage or manifested cargo. Transporting pets as cargo essentially means they are treated as an extra suitcase – albeit a very special suitcase!

Fortunately, shipping your pet in the plane’s cargo hold is convenient and relatively inexpensive.

Some airline staff members may be unused to passengers’ travelling with pets. This should not be a problem, but before you leave, double check that you have all the appropriate documentation with you.
